Halloween fun at homes across the Trust!
Care homes across The Orders of St John Care Trust will be getting into the Halloween spirit with some ghoulish gatherings and freaky fun events on Thursday 31st October.
Grace Care Centre will be hiding small pumpkin toys around Thornbury with a note asking people who find them to return them to the home to claim a prize. The reception area of the home will also be decorated to greet visitors in scary style.
The Lakes Care Centre in South Cerney is holding its annual Halloween party, with plenty of fiendish fun and games, from 2.30-4.30pm. Residents will also be dressing up for the occasion.

Lake House in Banbury is inviting local children to a community Halloween tea party which will include apple-bobbing, pin-the-nose-on-the-witch and guess the weight of the pumpkin competitions. There will also be trick or treat stations, a spooky punch, pumpkin soup and scary biscuits.
Larkrise Care Centre, also in Banbury, is hosting a Halloween party with trick or treating, apple-bobbing, a spooky skittles game and homemade treats. The home will also be decorating and carving pumpkins and decorating the reception as a witch’s lair with bubbling cauldrons and cobwebs.
And Edwardstow Court Care Centre in Stow-on-the-Wold has already enjoyed some fangtastic fun after children from Stow Primary School joined residents for some Halloween themed games and colouring. The pupils all went home with a little treat, which residents wrapped up for them.
