CARE home residents in Barrhead had a ‘spook-tacular’ time marking Hallowe’en as staff organised an afternoon of frightful fun for all to enjoy.

Scary masks and ghoulish costumes were included in the dress code for residents and staff as the special celebration took place at Parkhouse Manor Care Home.

The day started with some traditional Hallowe’en games before talented singer Jamie Walker took centre stage to provide everyone with live entertainment.

Throughout the week, residents also had the opportunity to take part in various crafts, including a pumpkin-carving contest with staff to discover who could create the most devilish face.

Leeanne Taggart, activities co-ordinator at the care home, said: “Everyone had a great time. We try to do things like this often, as it really lifts the mood for all our residents.

“We had face paints for anyone who wanted to do that and we did crafts during the week. The pumpkin contest went down well.

“Everyone’s families came along, so it was really good fun.

“Our thanks go to Jamie Walker for providing some music.”
