After the trick or treating, everyone gathered in Fairway View’s lounge to enjoy a spooky disco and a delicious buffet.

Melanie Hayes, the Home Manager at Fairway View, added, ‘We wanted to give local families a warm and safe environment where they could bring along the kids for some good old trick or treating.

‘Our residents had an amazing time meeting all the children and handing out their treats. It was a wonderful way for the different generations to bond.’
