The trips help people get together, keep active and above all have a good day out.
These monthly trips are open to all members who can be out for a half or full day without extra support, or can bring a companion to support them. We include local outings, popular food trips and occasional longer days to locations further away, such as a Summer trips to the seaside. Get in touch with any suggestions for trips.
