WITH fiendishly frightening costumes and a giant carved pumpkin of monstrous proportions, there will be some spooky goings on at a Droitwich care home today.

Residents and the team at Westmead Care Home, Westmead Close, have dressed to impress for Halloween.

The home has been transformed into a haunted house for the day with some spooky decorations – including a gigantic pumpkin which the residents have helped to carve.

Chefs at the home have been busy creating a party menu and a pumpkin-shaped cake, baked by catering assistant Dot Spencer.

Home manager Sue Stokes said: “There was a huge buzz in the home in the run-up to Halloween and the residents and team had so much fun carving the pumpkin and decorating the home.

“As always Dot’s cake looked – and tasted – spectacular and went down a storm.

“The day was just a lovely opportunity for all the generations to get together and enjoy a good knees up.”
