West Midland Safari Park

Campania take a trip to West Midland Safari Park. Driving through the park, getting up close to the animals. Then visiting the rest of the park via foot, including the robot life size dinosaurs!

We had the most amazing time driving through the park and seeing all the animals. There are simply too many animals to name, but our highlight was the Pride of white Lions and the white royal Bengal tigers! It was such an amazing sight seeing them as none of the residents had seen white lions or tigers before, including myself. – Chunu, Activities Coordinator

Puxton Park

An all weather adventure park and farm. They start the afternoon with a lovely picnic in the park before exploring the attractions.
Firstly they could not pass the go-karts without giving them a go and getting competitive racing each other!

They then watch the falconry display,

An awesome sight to see the falconer guide the birds to fly really low and really fast. They were literally flying about a foot above our heads!

After the display, they all jumped aboard a miniature train and went for a ride around some of the animal enclosures. Finally exploring the rest of the park on foot, meeting the variety of animals living there; from large cows, chickens, pigs,  piglets to meerkats. Resident, Mack, was very taken in by the meerkats, so much so he wanted to take one home, which the other residents were very supportive of.

We all had a really good time at Puxton Park

The Princess Theatre

Residents went to the Princess Theatre in Burnham-on-Sea to watch Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. A production by a local drama group aged between 5 to 16.

The show was an amazing success, a sold out performance.

Residents said how much they love the show; clapping and cheering. Unfortunately we could not get any pictures of the show, but all in all it was an amazing day and everyone said that they had a really good time and glad they went.

We are all looking forward to the next performance of the Little Shop of Horrors
