On 14 May 2014 a cheerful group of 8 helpers and 14 senior citizens (some very senior – our oldest member is 103) were take by community minibus and private cars to Heale House for an outing generously funded by Focus in on Life. In ideal weather – warm enough to sit outside, and cool enough for comfort – we enjoyed a splendid meal beside a carrier stream of the Wiltshire Avon before the more mobile guests ventured to explore the beautiful grounds of this ancient estate, aided as ever by our loyal helpers when needed. All too soon – although it was more than four hours later – we had to return to our base at Gloucester House. Everyone was really enthusiastic about the opportunity to experience the wonderful environment in this quite valley, so different from their day-to-day urban life.
Our costs were: £94.50 entrance fee; £300 lunch; £75.29 transport; a total of £469.79.
The pictures below were taken to provide a record, and to show to our sponsors. We are very grateful to Focus in on Life for their support.
