RESIDENTS at a Dudley care home received a special Valentine's gift when they received a surprise visit from local firefighters.

Firefighters from Dudley Fire Station took time out of their day to visit Broadway Halls Care Home on February 14 where they handed out a single red rose to each of the home's residents and stopped for a tea and a chat.

They also all enjoyed specially designed Valentines cakes made by Broadway Hall's chef, Jackie.

Julie Parkes, Magic Moments Club assistant, said: "It was a fantastic afternoon and it was lovely to see so many smiles who didn’t suspect a thing when had told them we had a special surprise. We are so proud of West Midlands Fire Service and the work they do and it was great to be able to meet the team and say thank you in person.”
