Special outing for retired coach driver


Kingdom Homes care home group in Fife helps residents fulfil their wishes for a special outing or new experience through the “Wishing Well” which sits in the reception of each care home.

Willie Brown, a resident at Lomond View Care Home in Falkland, is the latest person to have his wish granted.

Willie was a coach driver throughout his working life and loved every minute of his job. He worked for private coach firms and regularly took people on day trips and to football matches etc. One of his favourite destinations was Stonehaven, the beautiful coastal town in the north east of Scotland. He said that he would love to return to the town, this time as a passenger, and Kingdom Homes was delighted to make this wish a reality, granting him sole use of the minibus with driver Tom and passenger assistant Morag at his disposal for the day.

Tom sat down with Willie to plan the route of the 150 mile round trip and the three set off from Falkland on a bright, sunny Spring morning looking forward to a leisurely drive north.

Once they arrived in Stonehaven they took a leisurely walk around the harbour area and old clock tower before heading to a pub for lunch consisting of delicious fresh caught fish with chips and mushy peas. Lunch over they headed back to Fife by a different route and were back in Falkland in time for tea. Willie thoroughly enjoyed his special day out and is currently planning another trip to one of his old haunts.
