Halloween and Guy Fawkes Activities and Gatherings

We wanted to share our Halloween and Guy Fawkes activities and gatherings across our group of care homes! Many more photographs can be found on our Runwood Homes Senior Living Facebook Page

After a lucky, long and mild summer, the beautiful colours we can see from our windows finally sees us in the season of Autumn and the events of Halloween and Guy Fawkes Bonfire Night certainly confirms this!

So many of homes have been celebrating Halloween and have provided photos of activities and fun that our residents, their family and friends, our care teams and our local communities have been involved in. Please take a look through our colourful and entertaining Halloween photos and for more information, please browse our website, or Find a Home close to you by clicking here.
