Across the region, many of our services have been out and about preparing for Halloween.

They've been on spooky-themed days out, picked out perfect pumpkins from local farms and returned to craft home-carved pumpkin lanterns to decorate their homes. As you can see here, they had a whole lot of fun crafting the jack-o'-lanterns.

Bolsover's Hilltop service visited nearby Rufford Abbey for their spooky inspiration. They then spent hours carving pumpkins (pictured above and in the main picture).

Both our Beechwood service in Nottingham and Retford's South Lodge and Iedale services (pictured below) also enjoyed a day out at their local pumpkin patches. And over at the Sherwood Centre, the team spent hours crafting masks and Halloween-inspired art to decorate the Mansfield Woodhouse day centre.

Happy Halloween everyone!
