Creepy skeletons and spooky spiderwebs transformed the Van Horne Suite at Wilhelmina House for Halloween. The whole community had the opportunity to carve a pumpkin and dress up in their scariest fancy dress costumes.
Meanwhile over at Whitgift House, the afternoon was spent competing in a gruesome themed word search and baking spider biscuits and witches’ fingers. Whilst enjoying their cakes, residents listened to spooky tunes such as Thriller by Michael Jackson and the Ghostbusters theme tune.
“The activities have brought back treasured memories of when we used to go trick or treating with the children.” said 1596 Club member.
“I’ve never carved a pumpkin before, it’s been great to try something new!” saidWilhelmina House resident, Sheila.
“The staff always go above and beyond to make sure we enjoy ourselves.” said Wilhelmina House resident, Audrey.
1596 Club member commented: “The afternoon was such fun. I really enjoyed baking and eating the yummy Halloween treats.”
