A group of Visiting Friends clients and two residents from Bernard Sunley care home had a fantastic visit to RHS Wisley gardens last week. The group of ten clients, two staff members and two volunteers spent the day walking around the gardens taking in the beautiful smells and colours of the vibrant flowers on display. They also enjoyed a delicious lunch together before continuing their time at the gardens.
Kerry Reed-Brooke, Visiting Friends Coordinator, said: “We had such a wonderful day. Trips to Wisley always are very popular as it’s just such a beautiful place to visit. We try and get there a few times during the year to see all the different plants and flowers they have there in varying seasons. We had so many laughs and shared many memories. There have been some fantastic friendships formed among our befriending clients and two of them have decided to regularly meet, which is so special to see. Some of our clients achieved goals of getting out of the house on their own, which they had not been able to do for a very long time.”
