Staff and residents at Hall Park care home in Bulwell welcomed families from the community to celebrate Bonfire Night with a bang this November 5th when they wrapped up warm to watch a fantastic firework display and enjoy lots of seasonal treats washed down with some hot chocolate.

Bonfire Night commemorates the foiling of the Gunpowder Plot when 14 individuals tried to blow up the House of Lords during the state opening of Parliament on November 5th 1605. Staff and residents made a traditional Guy to burn on the bonfire while the fireworks lit up the night sky.

The residents enjoyed traditional bonfire night treats, including jacket potatoes, hot dogs, prepared by the head chef Charmaine.
