RESIDENTS ENJOY A TRIP TO GREENWICH PARK

14 August 2017

Last week, on behalf of generous funding from one of our relatives, residents from Elmwood spent a day at Greenwich Park where they had the chance to explore the gardens, the Royal Observatory and the nearby wildlife area. They also enjoyed taking in the views over the River Thames, University of Greenwich, the Isle of Dogs and the City of London.

The visit brought back many happy memories for our residents. Jenny commented, “Isn’t it beautiful? When I used to live in the area, I remember visiting this park with my family and friends.” For Norma, Greenwich was the site of her old school. She remarked, “It’s good to be here again.”  Muriel also commented, “It’s such a wonderful experience.  The flowers were beautiful and I didn’t want to leave!”   

The day was a great success and on behalf of our residents, we would like to say a big thank you to those that made it happen!
