In addition to our regular minibus services, we operate a “Going Out and About” service to get people out of their homes for a while to enjoy good company, make new friends and have a sociable meal together. If you would like to know more, contact Shirley Jones on 01271 863630 for a list of 2016 trips.
Our first trip of 2016 was an around the coast journey, Ilfracombe, Woolacombe, Croyde, Saunton and then into Barnstaple to Woody’s for fish and chips.
COMMUNITY MINIBUS HOLIDAY GROUP – 14 of us – had a lovely 5-days in Bournemouth at the Oceana Suncliff Hotel from 1 February to 5 February. Highly recommended for cleanliness, quality and quantity of food, obliging staff etc. And the weather was sunny! The minibus took us for a day in Salisbury, we drove through the New Forest on a number of occasions, went to Beauleigh and Poole. However we gave the minibus and driver a rest on one day when we used our bus passes to get to the shops in Bournemouth.
We had a day trip out on Wednesday 17 February going to Taunton for shopping. Unfortunately it rained all day, but everyone enjoyed a meal out there and came home with some bargains.
WEDNESDAY 2 MARCH 2016
Fifteen of us went by Community Minibus to Durrant House Hotel, Bideford today. Along with our driver, Garry, we had a lovely 2-course lunch for £7.50 – excellent value and service – plentiful and good choice of main course and sweets. We all enjoyed our meal very much.
