Hunters Down Care Home Reception Is Magically Transformed Into Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory

Hunters Down Care Home in Huntingdon staff have been fully dedicated in making their residents a magical Easter display. After many discussions with the residents it was decided to turn the reception area into Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

As you walk towards the entrance and see the purple Wonka sign with lights through the golden Wonka name and purple balloons up the sides and is an “enchanting sight” to your imagination go wild!

Some of the wonderful displays from the story to see include:

  • Charlie and his house with his four grandparents in the same bed
  • Chocolate fountain with pipes filled of the chocolate liquid running around the walls and ceiling
  • Willy Wonka and three Oompa Loompas
  • Augustus Gloop stuck in the chocolate tube
  • Violet blown up like a blueberry
  • Likable wallpaper
  • & much more

Residents have enjoyed helping and amazed how it has evolved throughout the weeks, with staff eager to showcase the factory once everything has been finished ready for the Easter Celebrations.

There are still many more surprises to come as Easter approaches. Special chocolate Wonka bars will be given out and 5 of them will have a golden ticket for special prizes. Edible chocolate fountains will be placed around with giant marshmallows to dip into the smooth velvety running chocolate.

The Huntingdon Mayor will open the factory on Friday 2nd April at 2pm.
