Cheam Scream - Hallowe'en event

Some of the local businesses where I work in Cheam, today took part in Cheam Scream, a Hallowe'en event for kids to come trick or treating.  They had to collect a map of the businesses taking part and all dressed in their Hallowe'en finest, came knocking at the doors...

We decided to join in and decorated the entrance to our office...
 we hung balloons, cobwebs, garlands and a skelly....

 who we decided needed a speech bubble
- Phil's idea - well, we do sell life insurance!









we carved pumpkins (and a pineapple)

 and put up lights
 door open, ready for the kids....













Course, we had to dress up too....
Shaun, surgeon of death....

 Dracula Phil...


















witchy Helen... (once Phil had finished with his cape)
 outside with the buckets of sweet treats (and adult treats, mulled wine)

Phil and Josh with added tu-tus...



It was a great 3 hours, the kids had fun - the adults too, there were some amazing costumes, but I didn't take pictures of the kids, because I didn't think I should put them on here.
there were hundreds of kids and we gave out thousands of sweets!

Looks like great fun and a lovely 'give back' to your local community. Love the costumes. Great to work with colleagues who are always up for a bit of fun and don't take themselves too seriously!
