Residents of Barnes Lodge Care Home in Tonbridge embraced the sunny autumnal weather and took a trip to the beautiful Knole Park in Sevenoaks.
Residents of the brand new Tudeley Lane care home were treated to a morning at the picturesque park, thanks to the Tonbridge Lion’s Club, who provided transport for the day and a very friendly volunteer called Bob, who was happy to show the group the notable sights of the park and point out the key features.
The residents enjoyed sitting outside in the sunshine and soaking up at the atmosphere, whilst enjoying tea and cake and watching the variety of wildlife. After, they took a stroll around the grounds, with resident, David Parks enjoying taking photos of the deer, with his new camera that he received through the Society’s Wish Appeal.
Nicola Newman, social activities facilitator at Barnes Lodge, commented: “The residents had a lovely morning at the park, we were very lucky with the beautiful autumnal sunshine and the park looks beautiful at this time of year.
“We’d like to say a huge thank you to the Tonbridge Lion’s Club for kindly donating the transport and giving us a tour of the park.”
