Local boys and ghouls from Ellesmere Port joined residents at Whitby House Care Home for spooky Halloween celebrations.

The home, on Pooltown Road, planned a range of activities to keep their young visitors entertained including decorating scary cakes, pin the eye on the witch and dance games to Halloween-themed tunes.

Angela Earlam, home manager at Whitby House, said: “It was wonderful to have the children with us for the day. Seeing them interacting and forming friendships with the residents was lovely and they all looked fantastic in their Halloween costumes!”

Rose Bowen, resident at Whitby House, said: “I had a great day at the Halloween party with the local children. The outfits were brilliant, and I really enjoyed getting dressed up myself.”
