Spooky times at Whittington House

Things at Whittington House nursing home in Cheltenham got a little spooky this week.

Art Club had been busy making paper chains and decorating food tins which were colourful and scary, and these were used to decorate the Garden Suite ready for the evening Halloween party.

Our annual Halloween Party always goes down a treat and this year was no exception. Residents, relatives and staff all enjoy our themed days and love getting into the spirit by dressing up.

The celebrations began in the day with Film Club watching Disney’s ‘Hocuspocus’. Our Activity Coordinators made a grand entrance to the party whooshing in wearing red capes, bright wigs and masks causing a few screams which got the party started! Spooky music was played while everyone got involved in Halloween party games.

Everyone was treated to a ghoulish buffet prepared by our Chefs which included sandwiches, sausage rolls, scary jelly and gruesome cupcakes. There were buckets of sweets for the children to play trick or treat. After all the fun food and excitement the residents were worn out and ready for bed. One resident said that ‘we should be proud because it was such a wonderful evening and lovely to see so many new faces’.
