Walstead creep it real

At Walstead Place care home in Haywards Heath the residents enjoy celebrating Halloween.

On the run up to Halloween some of our residents, Marjorie, Kate and Alice, enjoyed pumpkin carving, which brought back memories of doing it with their children. They thoroughly enjoyed drawing their designs, hollowing out the pumpkin and then carving out the faces.

On Wednesday 31st October the care team all arrived in fancy dress, we all love dressing up for these events as we love all the fun and enjoyment it brings the residents. We all decorated the lounge with cob webs, banners, skeletons, anything we could find ready for the afternoons shenanigans!!

The afternoon was full of fun with apple bobbing, gory storytelling and gruesome drinks, topped off with a terrifying dinner.

Terrifying Turkey Dinner
Rest in peace – roast potatoes
Ghostly glazed cabbage
Dangerously diced swede
Curse of the cheesy omelette
Scary sticky toffee pudding
Chilly cherry flan
Pumpkin soup
Creaky cheese and celery quiche and salad
Serious squeaky sandwiches
Petrifying poached pears
