Spooky House Competition 2023

Halloween with Bluestones Medical Complex Care

Today we wanted to share with you what our young people got up to this Halloween.

To celebrate the spooky season and get into the Halloween spirit, this October we held a Halloween house decorating competition.

Each house went above and beyond and put so much effort into the decorating and it was great to see all the creative ideas.

We had the impact and well-being team go round to each of the houses to take pictures and judge the houses for the winner.


For most kids, Halloween is one of the most exciting times of the year.  They look forward to dressing up in costumes, going trick or treating and decorating the house for the spooky holiday.  However, for children in care, Halloween can feel isolating if they are not included in the festivities.  That’s why it’s so important that we involve young people in getting ready and celebrating Halloween together.

The haunted house competition was filled with creativity and enjoyment and our dedicated care teams got stuck, with some having more fun than our young people.  

Selecting the winner was a tough decision as each house pulled out all the stops and went above and beyond with their jaw-dropping displays. 

Drum roll …..   but a winner was picked and Sunflower House took the top prize. It was Spooktacular! Congratulations to them on a job well done. With December only around the corner we cant wait to see what’s in store for the Christmas season!
