Residents at a Meldreth care home helped out with an archeological dig when a historical society paid a visit on Saturday.

Meldreth Historical Society enlisted willing Maycroft Residential Care Home members to wash and clean items dug up from a pit outside their home.

The pit contained a number of intact glass bottles, 40 pieces of pottery and various other items which will be sent off for analysis.

Maycroft manager Lynn Ward said: “Residents came out with tea, cakes and snacks for the diggers to keep them going.

“The group enjoyed meeting the residents and vice versa.”
