Alexandra House Residents Enjoy Scenic Southend Excursion

Residents of Alexandra House recently travelled on our minibus, enjoying a delightful trip to Southend-on-Sea! The excursion provided a refreshing change of scenery and a chance for fun-filled activities, enhancing the wellbeing and happiness of our residents.

The outing featured a leisurely stroll along the seafront, followed by a delicious lunch of fish and chips, a beloved choice among the residents. The group then enjoyed thrilling visits to the arcades before pausing for a relaxing drink at a nearby pub. The day’s adventures were made even more enjoyable by the breathtaking coastal views and the shared excitement of exploring new experiences.

At Alexandra House, and across the Runwood Homes group, we enjoy these outings with our residents, seeing different surroundings and enjoying the fresh air is vital for their overall wellbeing. Such trips allow them to partake in enjoyable activities and relish their favourite meals, creating cherished memories.

Alan, husband of resident Valerie, expressed his gratitude: “Thank you for a very enjoyable trip. The wellbeing team works hard to make these trips a brilliant day out.”

Resident Millie also shared her enthusiasm: “The best bit was the fish and chips and then having my stick of rock after.”

This memorable trip to Southend-on-Sea highlights Alexandra House’s commitment to enhancing the lives of its residents through thoughtful and enjoyable experiences
