Happy Halloween

We've all been joining in, in a variety of  ways, with the celebration of the day that is Halloween.  Top marks must go to our resident witch (in the nicest possible sense..), Sue Williams, team leader in one of our houses who's been wearing a fabulous outfit complete with green feather eyelashes and has led a fun-packed day for the children and young people staying here over the school and college holidays.

By Christmas the building work should be complete then there's the interiors to fit out and finalise.  

Once the houses are ready we will have a period of transition where those students moving as part of this first phase become familiar with their new living space and by Easter we hope that everyone will have settled in.
