Ivy Court visit Whitlingham Country Park

This week the Ivy Court residents, family and friends, and some of the care team took a trip to Whitlingham County Park. The woodland and water park is a great place to walk, cycle, picnic and bird watch.

We all went for a walk around the lake, keeping a look out for different birds and animals on the path, and looked at some of the boats and different sports such as sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, rafting and canoeing which can all be done on the lake.

As it was a little cold, rather than a picnic we decided to have a cup of tea in the coffee shop to warm up and enjoy the sites, it also gave us all a chance to talk about the wildlife, we were surrounded by swans and ducks at one point.

In the historic flint barn, we had a look around the visitor information centre and picked up information leaflets and post cards to leave around the home for the residents to read about wildlife, and we brought some things for the home.

The residents really enjoyed being in the fresh air on a lovely afternoon, maybe we will take another trip back on a sunny day with a picnic!
