Anchor’s Eastlake care home in Nightingale Road has held a Pumpkin Carving competition this Halloween. 

Staff and residents alike took part in the spooky fun this week. There was much laughter as everyone carved their pumpkins into some weird and wonderful designs. The marvellous creations included scenes of Harry Potter, various monsters, ghosts, cats and even a haunted house.

Eastlake Deputy Manager Michael Beswick was the competition judge and had a tough job on his hands deciding the winners from so many great entries. 

Michael said: “It was great to see everyone enjoying themselves and having so much fun while carving the pumpkins, it was a hard decision to make but I felt honoured to be the judge.”

First place was awarded to Carolyn Branfield with her scary devil carving, second place went to Joan Weston with a slinky cat design, and third place was Josephine Emery with her frightening monster.

Happy Halloween from everyone at Eastlake!
