Braving the Blustery Weather for a Trip to Skegness

1—Holmewood-Skegness-TripCHESTERFIELD care home residents braved the blustery, wet weather for a trip to Skegness.

Residents at Holmewood Care Home, on Barnfield Close, spent the day strolling along the seafront, tucking into fish and chips and playing games in the arcade.

Resident Kathleen Leivesley said: “Skegness has always been a holiday destination for my family and we never missed our annual trip.”

Fellow resident Pat Greaves said: “I used to travel abroad and go on cruises and I always looked forward to the casinos. The arcades were a lovely reminder.”

Kathleen Richardson, home manager at Holmewood Care Home, said: “Despite the wind and the threat of rain, residents in Holmewood loved every single moment of being out and exploring their most popular holiday destination – Skegness.

“They were all thrilled from the start, when we were planning the trip, through to getting on the bus to come home. Everyone came back with smiles on their faces, despite the weather and long journey.”
