The Day the Seaside came to Winston Court!

After weeks of preparation and art sessions, finally, our seaside day arrived!!! Despite lockdown, all the residents of Winston Court enjoyed one of the best virtual days ever. 

The trip began when everyone boarded the virtual bus with much singing “we’re all going on a summer holiday”.

On ‘arrival’ people entered the garden decorated with lanterns and a backdrop of palm tree and a beach area.

There was a lot of fun in the sun including snapping pictures, laying on beach towels and lilos, creating sand castles or taking a paddle in our pool.

The day was complimented with a fish and chips lunch, fun seaside games with boat races, ball games, an ice cream stall and the fantastic candy floss machine.

"The whole day was packed with seaside sensory stimulation from start to finish and with much relaxation, fun and laughter so it will be remembered forever."
