Seaside Fun for Cotman

Cotman House and Lodge in Felixstowe, enjoyed 2 days of fun at Felixstowe beach front this week.

Fish and chips, seaside air and even a paddle in the sea were greatly enjoyed by a large group of octo- and nonogenarians.

The group had shedloads of fun on Wednesday and Thursday at the The Hut near the Spa Gardens. Thirty six of the home’s 61 residents spent a day in the sunshine watching the world go by. Joan Stone, 98, even went for a paddle.

Joanne Rix, Home Manager for Cotman Lodge and House, said: “In true British seaside tradition, we had fish and chips followed by a choc ice for lunch. The Hut is ideal for us as it has a kitchen and is accessible for wheelchairs. As the weather was so lovely, we spent most of the time outside on the patio, and were able to make teas and coffees on demand.

“Some of our residents went for a walk along the prom, others played games, many were content just to sit and people-watch.  Everyone at the homes has been talking about this outing for weeks – it’s an annual event, and much anticipated. Some residents even went on both days, they enjoyed it so much.”
