Outings:

All outings are geared to clients needs and capabilities and due to this a limited number of clients can go on any one outing.

Every Tuesday we take many of our clients out for lunch to The Woolpack Inn, Worle. Every Thursday we used to go on a mystery scenic drive in our minibus, though this became less popular and we no longer offer this. Hopefully with greater interest we can offer this again, especially in the summer when the weather is nice!

We do try to make as much use as possible out of our garden. When the weather is nice we have our summer table and chairs for the use of our clients and their visitors. We provide nice cold drinks and ice creams/ice lollies as refreshments when the weather is hot!
