Spooktacular Fun for all at Ridgeway Care Home

News release

1st November 2012

The youngsters from the Lincoln Marina setting visited the home on The Avenue to trick-or-treat and play games with the elderly residents.

Staff at the nursing home organised a party with face painting, games and party food, while residents joined in with the fun by dressing up in witches’ hats and giving out sweets to the children from pumpkin-shaped bowls. The visit took place during Halloween afternoon yesterday (October 31st)

Vampire Jacob McDonnell, aged two, was one of the most enthusiastic participants, saying: “I make a very scary vampire!”

As well as having his face painted he enjoyed chatting to residents, including Mrs Alice Burnett (94), who was dressed as a witch.

The other children were also dressed up as spiders, skeletons and witches as well as some less scary princess and bumblebees and even staff from the nursery and care home were dressed up as witches and elves!

Room Leader at The Old Station Nursery on Lincoln Marina, Rebecca Craigen, said: “The children really enjoyed meeting the residents and tucking into the Halloween treats. 

“They had great fun dressing up in different costumes and making scary faces. We’re very grateful to the staff and residents at Ridgeway Care Home for inviting us to be part of their activity day.”
