Care Home Residents and Team Members Enjoy a Boat Trip Around Southampton Water

Residents and team members at West Cliff Hall in Hythe, Hampshire, enjoyed a boat trip around Southampton Water, which their care home overlooks.

The nine ladies and gentlemen and two team members were in the first group to have a cruise this year on board the M/V Alison MacGregor, a catamaran operated by Solent Dolphin which offers free boat trips taking disabled people out to sea, since Covid restrictions were lifted.

For this cruise, the boat took them from Hythe Marina, close to whether West Cliff Hall is located across Southampton Water, cruising under Itchen Bridge in Southampton and up the River Itchen as far as Bitterne.

Commenting on their cruise, West Cliff Hall Manager Aga Gierek-Tan, says: “Our residents and team members absolutely love to go cruising on the Alison MacGregor. We are so lucky to live beside Southampton Water which is one of the busiest waterways in England. Having the opportunity to enjoy the sights around the busy port and river is one of our special highlights of the year.”
