Winter wonderland holiday for children and young people at Woodlands
Two residents and staff members at our short-break service Woodlands spent a weekend amongst acres of stunning Lancashire countryside last month.
Their holiday to the Brickhouse Farm Cottages has become an annual experience, not only because of the tranquil surroundings, but also because of the disabled facilities, sensory equipment, hydrotherapy, and wheelchair accessibility, which meet our young people's needs.
As well as enjoying a view of the fishing pond with ducks tapping on the door looking for food, the young people could be found attending the hydro pool and sensory room, bringing them much joy and relaxation.
During their stay, team Woodlands organised a trip to the town of Morecambe, where they had the chance to enjoy the pleasures of the seaside and hunt for a delicious traditional fish and chips meal. Being only a step away from the bright lights of Blackpool, our young residents were pleased to visit the resort town and enjoyed a trip down the pier for a jacket potato - a favourite meal for one of the young people.
As the Christmas season had already begun, our Woodlands travellers took the chance to visit the garden centres, filled with festive cheer and spend some money on Christmas goodies.
Well done to our amazing team at Woodlands who are absolute legends and deliver life-changing support and care to our residents at all times.
