Wed, 3rd April 2019 - Meadowlands Update - April 2019
As a birthday surprise for one of our Service Users who is an avid Chelsea fan, Staff organised a trip to Stamford Bridge.
Totally unaware until the morning of the trip, there was a look of sheer joy and excitement as staff whisked him off to Frome Station for the trip to London.
Coping brilliantly with the challenges of the big city and the totally unfamiliar London Underground, excitement mounted as Stamford Bridge came into view.
More surprises in store, a tour of the Stadium, the Chelsea FC Museum and then into the shop for the all essential souvenirs.
The homeward journey was equally as smooth as the journey up, and despite being tired after a fabulous day out there was no falling asleep.
A slight hiccup when staff missed the turning for Frome Station for the pick-up, but other than that it had been a very successful and exciting day for all concerned!
During the week of the Day Service shut down, some of our Service Users enjoyed a day out at Monkey World. The weather kept dry and a good time was had by all.
Happy 21st Birthday to one of our Service Users, who celebrated by being taken to Harrods for tea with his parents.
One of our Service Users is getting very enthusiastic about baking cakes, today for a change they decided to try cooking quiche with great success – it was very tasty.
Some of our Service Users decided that they would like to go to the seaside, walk along the pier and have a picnic on the beach, and there is nowhere better to go than Clevedon Pier.
