The residents of Moat House Care Home in Burbage were all smiles as they embarked on an adventure of a lifetime. The dedicated Activities and Wellbeing team has been fundraising all year round to be able to take as many residents as possible on a heartwarming day trip to the picturesque coastal town of Skegness, allowing the residents to relive some of their cherished memories all while, creating new ones with their loved ones.

Upon arriving in Skegness, the residents were greeted by the soothing sound of waves crashing against the shore and the invigorating sea breeze. They reveled in a day of sunshine, scenic walks along the beach, and the nostalgic scent of traditional fish and chips wafting through the air.

Residents were treated to a comfortable coach journey, a morning at the arcade, and enjoying the rides. Everyone enjoyed a tray of freshly battered ‘fish’n’chips’ while watching the seagulls fly over the waves.

One of the delighted residents, couldn’t contain her joy as she expressed, “It felt great to be by the seaside and feel the sand between my toes. It’s been a long time since I was last here with my family, so many great memories!” Her sentiment echoed the collective happiness shared by all who attended.
