Pumpkins and partying at Milngavie Manor


In fact, everyone was so pleased with the amazing pumpkins that they threw a party to celebrate.

Of course, the party was pumpkin-themed.

Milngavie Manor’s Wellbeing and Lifestyle Coach Morag Scott said everyone loved the very special way to celebrate Halloween.

She said: “It was lovely to see staff and residents in the lounge, and there was such a nice buzz about the home.

“Pumpkin carving is such a lovely tradition, it’s just a shame that they don’t last long.”

The party included pumpkin golf, hoop and bean bag games with witch/ghost cones, and it all ended with a parcel-the-parcel and cuppa and cake.

Morag added, “There was a lot of laughter, and who would have thought you could play pumpkin golf – and in the comfort of your own home!”

The pumpkins at Milngavie Manor included scary and funny pumpkin faces with zipper mouths as well as some gleefully smiling.
