Tameside Residents go on barge tripsAt residential memory care home, Yew Trees, in Dukinfield, a number of trips for Residents have taken place throughout September. 

A few barge trips had been booked through Tameside Canal Boat Trust which is a registered charity to take the Residents out after a long 18 months being unable to do so due to national restrictions. 

All the Residents, including Frank Whybrow, Jim Middleton and Ian Pownall, had a wonderful time. 

Colleagues took drinks, snacks and a karaoke machine which everyone had a sing-along to, it was a great atmosphere.

One of the Residents commented, “That was great! What an amazing atmosphere!”

Holly Smith, Wellbeing Coordinator, commented, “All I can describe from this day is that it was brilliant, comical and just absolutely great!”
