Residents from Borough Care’s Silverdale home in Bredbury, Stockport, recently enjoyed a cruise on the canal. Residents travelled by barge from Marple to Poynton, joined by family members and staff. During the trip, refreshments were served and there was even a stop off for ice cream.
Everyone had a great day out, with one resident in particular thrilled with the day. The lady had never been on a barge before, so really enjoyed every minute of the trip. As residents were joined by their families, it was a great way for people to create memories and spend time together doing something a little different.
