Drive Out

Wed 11th October 2017 at 14.00 - 17.00

Every year we invite older people who are practically housebound to a drive out in the countryside and an afternoon tea at a garden centre or tea room.

This year it was held on Wednesday 11th October and along with Havant Inner Wheel, our sister Club, we took a group of individuals to Stansted via a leisurely drive in the Hampshire countryside before having a lovely tea in the Blossom Cafe in the Garden Centre. The weather was not kind this year but the rain cleared up after lunch and did not spoil our enjoyment. Each guest was presented with a potted plant from the nursery to take home and hopefully establish in their own gardens in the spring. The shop in the garden centre provided an excellent opportunity for some to do a bit of early Christmas shopping!

If you know of someone who is able-bodied but lacks transport, is lonely and in need of a bit of companionship, and you think they might benefit from a free afternoon out to brighten up their week and perhaps make new friends, why not contact us and pass on their details. We will be glad to consider them for our Drive Out.
