We all had a fantastic day trip to Southend. We set off in three coaches, taking 162 residents with us. The weather was beautiful and we spent a lovely day on the beach, on the pier, walking along the prom, having fish & chips, ice cream, cups of tea and going into Sealife Adventure. Everyone said what a great day they had.
The MRA would like to thank our locally elected County Councillor, Kareen Hastrick, who funded one coach out of her County Council Locality Budget for Community Projects. Thanks too to Sophie from Watford Community Housing who also helped secure funding for a second coach. The MRA was able to fund the third coach plus entry into Sealife Adventure. Receiving the funding made this trip possible for so many people.
Here are photos of some of the people that came on the trip and some of the animals/fish that we saw in Sealife.
