Happy Halloween!

Wow, Halloween at Cramlington House and West Farm this year really has been spooktacular! Both homes held a fun filled fantastic Halloween party with lots of fun and games enjoyed by all.

Staff, with the help of residents, dressed each home wonderfully and the scene was set for a thrilling celebration!

Loraine Brunton, our general manager, said: “Wow, what a fabulous day. There was so much going on and residents have enjoyed every single minute of it. It was wonderful to see so many faces, including the families of residents and staff who joined us. Hearing the laughter and seeing the smiles all around both homes was such a priceless feeling.

“Delicious food and drink including cupcakes, chicken broth and stuffed jacket potatoes were made, and some amazing costumes and pumpkins were on display too, which residents had helped make and prepare in the run up to Halloween.

“Everyone particularly enjoyed apple bobbing and being involved in our spooky quiz! Huge thank you to every staff member who got involved today; the residents definitely enjoyed themselves and hugely benefited from the occasion.”
