Holiday park residents celebrate at Halloween-themed End of Season Fun Day
Families from the two holiday parks on the Holker Estate celebrated their annual End of Season Fun Day last Saturday 28th October at Old Park Wood. Holker owns two private holiday parks based near Cartmel and Kirkby-in-Furness.
The annual Fun Day once again raised money for two local charities, St Mary’s Hospice and Guide Dogs for the Blind through a prize raffle and cake sale totalling £300.
Despite being a truly autumnal damp and windy day, the residents turned out in force to enjoy home-cooked barbecue food and cakes and to sample the local ales made at Unsworths Yard Brewery. There were many entries in the ‘Mini Duathlon’ organised by the local scouts as well as over twenty entries in the annual photography competition.
Little ones were kept entertained by rides on very well behaved ponies from Bigland Hall, in between the face-painting studio and magic shows. Werewolves, witches, ghosts and devils were just some of the creative Halloween costumes worn by the children who entered the fancy dress competition. There was also a record number of elaborate and imaginative designs entered in this year’s carved pumpkin contest.
We would like to thank all local businesses involved for their kind support and of course our residents for making the day such a success.
