VIP guests - including Welwyn Hatfield MP Grant Shapps, Mayor of Welwyn Hatfield borough Cllr Roger Trigg, Cllr Pankit Shah and former Cllr James Bond and Hatfield Town Mayor Cllr Linda Mendez - arrived to see residents enjoying some light armchair exercise by Zumba Gold tutor Liz Holmes.
"I'd also like to pay tribute to the hardworking staff not just for organising this event but for all they do," Mr Shapps said.
"I'd urge anyone to learn more about their local care home and am already looking forward to joining in the Zumba again next year!"
