Astbury Mere Residents are on the Road Again!

After a year of restrictions and limited activities, having minibus trips back on our programme after 12 months has been such a welcome change and we have a list as long as our arm of places we want to visit.

Most recently, a selection of our residents have ventured out and about in Cheshire, taking in the fresh air and making the most of the numerous places of beauty we have right on our doorstep.

In recent weeks, our residents Jean, Pamela and Beryl have visited beautiful Brereton Heath Nature Reserve, enjoying a peaceful afternoon stroll around the reserve and refreshments too. We embraced the opportunity to take in the scenery, and the fresh air, something we have missed doing.

On another of our trips, we ventured to another well-known destination – the popular Redesmere Lake – to feed the ducks and take in the beautiful views and plentiful wildlife the area has to offer.

Also on the agenda was a trip to Biddulph in Staffordshire, a place where our resident Doris used to live, so it was very special to be able to visit the town and take a nostalgic tour. Doris, accompanied by Dallas and Percy, enjoying remembering the town and the memories it holds.

When asked about their trips out, the residents were unanimous in saying they ‘enjoyed their walks’. Resident Jean commented: “We had a lovely time visiting Brereton and it felt really special because we hadn’t been able to visit in so long. We’re all looking forward to continuing the trips during the summer and visiting as many places as we can.”
