Summer Outing to Marwell Zoo

02 July 2017

This year we visited Marwell Zoo. 19 members attended along with 3 volunteers, 2 Community Transport drivers and 2 members of staff.

Summer Outing 2017

We travelled to and from Marwell by two minibuses, which we hired from Arun Co-ordinated Community Transport. We set off at 9.30am and returned at 5pm. We had a fantastic day out and the weather was brilliant. The objective for the day was firstly to give our members an enjoyable day out and to give their Carers some much-needed respite.
