Six residents from Love Walk enjoyed a short break recently when they went on a four-day holiday to Hayling Island. Situated between Portsmouth and Emsworth, Hayling Island boasts all the attractions of a traditional seaside resort.
Residents stayed in Mile Rythe Holiday Village and were delighted with all the facilities on offer. There were lots of things to do every day, including trips to Bognor Regis and Marwell Zoo, near Winchester. “It was lovely to see tigers, giraffes, leopards, flamingos, and, of course, the penguins – they always make you smile!”, resident Phillipa told us.
Everybody enjoyed wonderful evening entertainment, with singer Elliott Frisby and stand-up comedian Scotty Miller. As resident Pauline noted, “All the performances were outstanding. I loved the late nights of dancing, too.”
On the last day of the holiday our party stayed on site, where they enjoyed a garden party and barbeque, accompanied by a glass of Pimm’s and strawberries. They listened to the band and sang along to Abba songs and, later on, watched a cabaret act.
Helen Pheby, Home Manager, commented: “The residents were so happy and relaxed when they came back. They were quick to recommend the holiday to others in the home. It’s great to see that the team here can really make a difference and provide special experiences for the residents in their care.”
