Cotman visit Goslings Farm Shop

Some residents from Cotman House and Lodge in Felixstowe, took the mini bus to Goslings Farm Shop in Trimley St Mary.

We were blessed with sunny weather, so to quench our thirst before looking around we headed straight to the café for a quick drink.

After our refreshments we took a stroll around the nursery, looking at the various plants and flowers on offer, taking in the bright colours and smells. We talked about our favourite flowers, the smells we liked and those we didn’t quite so much, and even remembered the flowers we used to grow in our gardens.

The Farm Shop also specialises in pick your own strawberries and other fruit, so maybe next year we will bring some residents along to pick strawberries for the home.

The Farm Shop had an interesting selection of jams and drinks which we all agreed we wouldn’t mind tasting. Maybe this could be a tasting session at Cotman House and Lodge soon!
