Sunday 29th July

Everyone enjoyed their meal and nearly all came down to the lounge, some were too tired after their day of travel to get to the holiday. We played bingo and listened to the music at 10pm most of the group decided to get up and have a dance.
Tank Museum Monday 30th July

We went to The Tank Museum today and enjoyed the trip.One of the client's commented, "I didn't know tanks were so big and it was very interesting". Some of the group reflected on family memories of relatives lost.
Tuesday 31st July

Today we took a trip in to Bournemouth and after lunch we visited The Oceanarium. The Penguin Beach was very popular but the shark tunnel and all the brightly coloured fish were pretty impressive and enjoyed by all. In the evening we had entertainment and bingo and a variety of music which we all enjoyed.
The Aquarium
Swanage Railway Wednesday 1st August

We took a ride on a Steam Train to Swanage today and it proved very popular. We visited the station shop and the cafe was an added bonus. Some of the group also enjoyed a walk around the town and we all had a lovely lunch in a local cafe. The evening entertainment was enjoyed by all.
Thursday 2nd August

A quieter day today, we took a walk to the local shops and stopped at a local cafe for drinks. In the afternoon a repeat visit was made! We then enjoyed pool and table tennis and a dip in the pool for those who wanted to. The entertainment was very good this evening and John won the bingo!
tractor ride Friday 3rd August

A trip to The Heavy Horse Centre was our outing today. We got to see and feed the horses and other animals. There was a ride on a horse drawn cart and a chance to drive a tractor, which David and Martin especially enjoyed. They had a massive smile on their face while in the tractor. The day proved to be very popular. It was a busy evening packing getting ready for going home tomorrow.

Saturday 4th August

Last day, we all said our farewells and headed for home.
