As the nights drew in our young people made the most of the Halloween season and took themselves trick or treating with friends and staff. This was accompanied by pumkin carving and enjoying time together.
Many of our youngsters enjoyed time relaxing playing games, watching films and cooking. Some even made a chocolate bunker, organised a tea-party and cooked some delicious meals.
As always during school holidays some young people enjoyed visits to see family members and take part in family events.
For the end of October the weather was unusually pleasent so forest walks and days out also featured heavily, including Lazer Quest,cinema visits,skate parks and days out with peers.
It is nice to see that their imaginations were in full swing as one home had a pillow fort and mountain constructed, while another had evenings of dancing and performances.
As some of our young people are reaching ages where they have more free time it was nice to hear that one used this to walk into town for some shopping.
The half term was packed full of positive experiences and treats and they are all now looking forward to the next holiday.... Christmas!
