Over the last few weeks, we have collectively shared the laughter and the growing optimism of watching the England football team playing in a major tournament only for our worst fears to be realised as the curse of the penalty shoot-out settled on the shoulders of a new generation of England players. Here, we take the time to celebrate the team's achievement of reaching the final, with a photo gallery of supporters, old and young, from across the district.
Staff and residents at the Rheloa Care home,in St Ives. watched the game in the lounge and home manager Elizabeth Driver-Edgar said: "During the day the residents were singing and reminiscing about matches from the past.
"It was so nice to have something positive to bring the whole country together after the year we have all had. Rheola is so proud of the England team, they did us proud."
Jayne Wardell, who is the home manager of Hunters Down care home in Huntingdon, said residents enjoyed a buffet and the home was decorated from top to bottom with banners 'it’s coming home posters and even a life-size cut out of Gareth Southgate in the lounge.
"The day was exciting watching recorded historical games and filming our renditions of Sweet Caroline and Its Coming Home.
