On Friday 13th July, 3 residents took a trip to Heighleygate Garden Centre in Morpeth. After an interesting ride up the A1, we arrived at this huge garden centre and were pleasantly surprised to find plenty of indoor and outdoor plants that residents could name and remember growing in their gardens. There were also clothes and book shops, which prompted many discussions.
After a lovely lunch in the café, we also discovered the pet corner, with furry and feathered friends bringing back memories of pets and experiences, as well as plenty of tanks of colourful fish of all shapes and sizes.
On the way home, we drove down the coast and had a look at the ‘Couples’ statue at Newbiggin. We arrived back at the home just in time for tea and ready for a rest.
