Continuing their series of day trips, events, and visits, here’s what the South Gloucestershire Dementia Meeting Centre groups have been up to so far this summer.
With the weather (somewhat) on our side, our members, staff and volunteers headed off to Bristol’s famous floating harbour.
Life jackets on, they were ready to go! Thanks to the kind team at All-Aboard Water Sports, everyone was able to enjoy a cruise around the docks on the wheelchair-friendly boat with the Captain treating us to a historic tour, pointing out local landmarks and giving time for our members to talk and ask questions.
Having built up an appetite, after sailing we headed to The Cottage Inn on Bristol Harbourside for some delicious food. Everyone had a lovely day!
June saw us enjoying another mode of transport; this time, a train! Joining North Somerset Meeting Centre, we hopped aboard the Avon Valley Railway for some fun on the tracks.
Sharing stories of days out on trains, trips to the West End, family excursions, and holidays further afield, the day was filled with excitement and conversation between our members.
Looking out at the wonderful scenery, we all agreed that steam trains are a wonderful way to travel and ended the day with an afternoon tea.
