Talented residents at the Henry Cornish Care Centre in Chipping Norton showed off their skills on Tuesday with an art exhibition to coincide with International Dignity Day.

Andy Andrews, 101, (pictured) who amazingly helped support the late John Logie Baird invent the television, displayed his paintings. Dorothy Blunsdon displayed knitted items to be used as training tools in maternity units in Africa, and residents Lena French and Rita Wiseman showed off their cross stitch and embroidery work.

Activities co-ordinator Sylvia Evans said the exhibition was aimed at helping residents celebrate their dignity, self worth and life achievements.
