‘Oh we do like to be besides the seaside’ for Kippingtons

At Kippingtons Nursing Home in Sevenoaks, some of our residents along with family guests and members of our team, enjoyed a day trip to Eastbourne on the 25th of June.

It could not have been a more perfect day as far as the weather was concerned – a wonderful summer’s day without a cloud in the sky, and warm enough so that the sea breezes just made for a comfortable temperature.

Upon arrival, it was straight to Harry Ramsden’s Fish & Chips Emporium for a great value lunch that included a plate of fish and chips, a hot drink of your choice, and a sweet of Bread and Butter pudding or ice cream.

The staff there kindly arranged a table so that we all could sit together in the cool of the main restaurant, and we didn’t even have to book in advance. Great service!

After lunch, there was just time to enjoy a short walk along the promenade to the pier, passing by the famous Eastbourne flower beds, where, following a quick photo-shoot, we were met by our mini-bus driver Tony.

We all had a fabulous day out and enjoyed a long scenic trip back to our home. So in the words of that classic song;

Oh! I do like to be beside the seaside
I do like to be beside the sea!
I do like to stroll upon the Prom, Prom, Prom!
Where the brass bands play: “Tiddely-om-pom-pom!”

So just let me be beside the seaside
I’ll be beside myself with glee
For there’s lots of girls besides,
I should like to be beside
Beside the seaside! Beside the sea!
