CRS takes part in Halloween activities

November 2, 2023

With October being spooky season, here at CRS, we thought we would get involved and have some fun! Both our Manchester and Portsmouth offices have been taking part in a host of Halloween-themed activities.

Pumpkin carving for both Manchester and Portsmouth offices

Both our Portsmouth and Manchester offices took part in pumpkin carving activities. Our Manchester office hosted the pumpkin carving session as part of their wellbeing incentives with a spooky season theme. Our Portsmouth office’s pumpkin carving encouraged people from all brands to take part and to bring their children along to take part in the fun. This went down a treat with lots of the children enjoying some half-term fun!

Who wore it best fancy dress

Our Portsmouth office hosted a Halloween-themed bake-off and invited everyone to come into the office in some form of fancy dress. We had a few contenders that had got quite creative with their fancy dress ideas – we have the four Jamies and Jamie Cutts himself from the Compass Associates Healthcare division, the piggyback trio and lots of other fantastic spooky-themed fancy dress costumes!

The winner of our Halloween fancy dress competition was Ashley Davies from our Compass Associates Elderly Care division!

A spooktacular bake-off

We had a fantastic array of Halloween-themed bakes from our amazing bakers! This included the following…

  • Biscoff spider cheesecake
  • Jammy Dodger blondies
  • Cheese & Bacon twists
  • Chocolate Brownies
  • Cupcakes

  • Plain Brownies
