We took 34 members on a trip to Southend today. We had a lovely email from one of our members as follows:

"What a perfect day to go to the seaside with the sun shining with Lisa and Dementia Club UK members. First stop was a hearty fish and chips meal and for some a vegetarian option which went down very well. Then it was off on a train ride on the worlds longest pier at 1.34 miles. As Sir John Betjeman said the pier is Southend and Southend is the pier. At least we can say we have been to sea. All in all a wonderful day and I can say we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves with thanks to Lisa and Mark for making it a memorable day."
