Tenants at Clos Meurig, near Cowbridge, celebrated Halloween together with a spooky street party organised by Mrs Roberts, and other residents who live in the street.
Although the windy weather was against them, they put on a fantastic event and everyone had a great time. One resident set up a spooky disco and games for the children, hot dogs were served from Mrs Roberts’ living room window and everyone got dressed up in their most terrifying outfits!
The children also got involved in creepy costume and pumpkin carving competitions. Huge thanks to Mr Homfray, owner of Penllyn Estate Farm and Forage Farm Shop‘s pumpkin patch which is next to Clos Meurig, who donated and delivered 25 pumpkins to be carved.
Tom, Neighbourhood Coach, was invited by tenants to judge the creepy costume competition on the day, and Nicola, Income Coach, judged the pumpkin carving competition through photos that Tom took. They awarded the top entries with sweets and chocolates, but as there were so many amazing entries it was very difficult to select the winners!
The party provided an exciting afternoon for the families and was a great success. The residents of Clos Meurig look forward to holding further celebrations and events together in the future.
