This Halloween, some of our care and support residents took part in a spooky competition.

Published: 03/11/2023

Residents and support workers alike threw themselves into the spirit of things and had a thrilling time! We were blown away by their creativity and enthusiasm. 

The three categories were: ‘best fancy dress’, ‘best activities’ and ‘best decorations’.   

Congratulations to all our winners and runners-up! 

Best Fancy Dress 

Winner: The Mount 

Our residents embraced the spooky theme with enthusiasm and style. They put up cobwebs in the communal lounge and got dressed up for the evening.

Best Activities 

Winner: Bramble Court
