The warmer weather and easing of restrictions has meant lots of trips out and about. We have explored new places, tried new activities and had a great time engaging with our community!
Trips to Weston
Some of us love the beach, so what better way to spend the hot summer days than visiting our local beach: Weston-super-Mare. We have mooched in the shops, treated ourselves to ice creams, paddled in the sea and even had a ride on a donkey!
Walks in the country side
Warmer days only spur us on to get out and about to explore our local country side. We have enjoyed lots of walks in Gloucester, visiting new places and returning to some of our favourites.
A break at Butlins
One of our favourite places to have a break, is Butlins. We had a week long stay, enjoyed lots of good food, discos and exploring the attractions.
June kicks off strawberry season, so what better way to enjoy one of our favourite fruits than going to pick our own?
We visited Primrose Vale, and had a great time picking the juiciest strawberries, sneaking a few to snack on along the way.
Holidays to Burnham on Sea
For the last week of June, we will be holidaying at Burnham on Sea. Thanks to Cheltenham Lions, we are holidaying in a static caravan all kitted out to make it fully accessible and easy for us to use! The site is close to the beach, a lovely fishing lake and plenty of beautiful walks – we can’t wait to explore!
We love animals, so jumped at the chance to visit some animals. We spent the day looking after chickens and walking sheep – it was great fun!
West Midlands Safari Park
We had a lovely day out at West Midland Safari Park. We had our first tattoo (temporary & glitter of course) won a prize on the Hook-a-duck & fed the animals.
Lunch at the Pub
One of our favourite things to do to break up the week is to have lunch at a pub. This time, we treated ourselves to a cocktail – to celebrating being able to go back to our local.
Holiday in Cirencester
We had a holiday in Cirencester. We really enjoyed visiting the bird park and getting out and about somewhere new.
RDA Lessons are back
Horse riding is one of our favourite activities. Lockdown has meant we haven’t been able to visit the RDA to take part in our weekly lessons. But since restrictions have eased, we have been back and a few weeks ago we took part in a small competition, winning a colourful rosette.
Exploring the Cotswolds
We are lucky to live so close to the Cotswolds. It means days out to beautiful places are just a short drive away. We have recently visited Bourton-on-the-Water. We enjoyed a picnic by the river, and looking at all the lovely shops along the busy high-street.
