ILFRACOMBE “GOING OUT AND ABOUT” GROUP

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. If you know anyone who would enjoy going on outings like this, contact Shirley Jones on 01271 863630 for a list of future trips.

UPDATE 11 DECEMBER 2015

On 28 November, a very successful 60s MUSIC NIGHT was held at the Ilfracombe Town Football Club.  A free minibus up and home was provided thanks to David Roberts.  Music provided by Roy was spot on for us to sing along and dance to, lovely refreshments provided by Julie and Allan, whole event including raffle organised by Sylvia.  Thanks to every one.  £330 was raised for the Community minibuses and a good night had by all.

On 18 November and 2 December, two more groups went for a meal at The Crealock Arms, Littlehampton which they enjoyed very much, followed by a visit to Atlantic Village, which surprisingly was very quiet.

A new group of users, the Focus group, spent a morning on Exmoor on 4 December stopping for coffee and later for lunch at The Old Station Inn, Blackmoor Gate.  They drove to Simonsbath, over Brendon Common up to Lynmouth and the Valley of the Rocks.  This was a first trip out for a number of the passengers.

On Monday 7 December, 15 passengers visited South Molton Christmas Tree Festival held in the parish church – what a magnificent display of 109 highly decorated trees!  Fantastic.  After refreshments in the church, they went to the Coaching Inn for lunch.  Another nice day out.
