Care home res­i­dents make their own Guy Fawkes

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FIREWORKS SPECIAL -

A CARE home’s fire­work dis­play went off with a bang thanks to the hand­i­work of its staff and res­i­dents.

Chal­font Lodge in Chal­font St Peter made a Guy Fawkes out of news­pa­per stuffed into tights with a bal­loon for the head on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 5.

Ac­tiv­i­ties or­gan­iser Hay­ley Clark said: “The res­i­dents and staff had a great time cre­at­ing him and he made a loud bang when the bal­loon popped on the bon­fire.

“Some of the res­i­dents used black card and glitter pens to make swirls and pat­terns of fire­work ex­plo­sions.

“In the evening the res­i­dents sat within the warm lounges, over­look­ing the grass area watch­ing the fire­work dis­play put on by our hard work­ing main­te­nance team. Ev­ery­one was ‘ooo­ing’ and ‘aaaaahing’ at the dis­play. The day was a fan­tas­tic suc­cess and ev­ery­one en­joyed them­selves.”
