A hellish competition between our care homes for halloween really brought out the costumes, as staff and residents love to dress up - some creepy & some funny stuff too;

Above resident Jane Rigby looks the part and commanded head of table at the lunch, great to see the participation and involvement of staff and residents.

The Halloween competition run throughout all the homes was won by Park house

Lots of fun was had by all, with spooky themed lunch and tea and haunted fun games. Staff dressed specially for the occasion, with some scary guises  

Caroline Downing won the homes best dressed spookster below. Pictured left is cape man (Hospitality Manager) - Johnathan Horwood not looking so inviting here and also left is frighteningly glamourous Activities Coordinator - Karen Law, a major contribuotor to the days skull duggery.

Pumpkin Man (staff member Eric Moise) above is looking a bit heady I'm sure you will agree.

Staff Anne Davis and Michelle Stevenson are certainly dressed to kill!

 

Diane Good - Park House Chef, made some delightful cakes, she also made witches semolina which was bright green and prepared other spooky dishes for our residents, finishing with finger and spider cake.

Our masked resident is Dorothy Clarke, sitting in front of the much decorated windows -   i dont know what anyone would've thought looking in? - probably the best Halloween Party in Bulwell!

Final horribly scary shot of Recreation Manager -  Andrew Good and that heady Eric the pumpkin!
