Outings

We pride ourselves in being able to offer all our members the opportunity to go out and about not only in our local area, but in some cases, further afield

We have 3 minibuses, which enable us to take small numbers of people out, maybe to different locations, or to one special organised group trip.

Ask any member, and they will tell you how much they enjoy outings!

One of our most popular outings, which happens on an weekly basis is a trip to Great Yarmouth, where we take a walk through the market place or visit a nice cafe on the seafront.

Bowling is also a very popular choice. Whether you’re experienced, or simply fancy having a go, anything is possible

Staff are very in tune with our members, and do their best to make special outings possible. We always welcome new ideas.

Some of the places we have visited

  • Pleasurewood Hills
  • Gressenhall Farm & Workhouse
  • Go Ape
  • The Royal Norfolk Show
  • Flixton Aviation Museum
  • Henry Blogg Museum Cromer
