It was a sunny June day when the bus arrived to pick us up from the Regional Flat Cluster in Bangor and from our Home Response office in William Street, Newtownards. Our jolly group consisted of service users from our Regional Flat Cluster, our DISH scheme and also from our Home Response scheme. Oh and three very excited staff members came along too!
For the last few years service users and staff from North Down and Ards have enjoyed an annual bus trip to various locations around the country. This year we started off by going to the delightful Praxis Secret Garden in Hillsborough for a morning stroll around the beautiful gardens and for a refreshing cuppa and scone in their quaint little café.
Suitably refreshed from our morning excursion we all hopped on the bus again and travelled to the Outlet Shopping Centre in Banbridge. With our purses and wallets ready we hit the large variety of shops and eateries at the Outlet and came away a few hours later with arms full of new purchases. We were a tired but happy bunch when we eventually got back on the bus at the end of the day. And as we began the journey home everybody was already asking “Where should we go next year?”
