OUR FIRST DAY OUT AFTER LOCKDOWN

Wednesday 5th August was our first coach trip out of Herefordshire to Wells in Somerset.

We all had our temperatures checked before boarding and wore face masks or shields for the journey.

On arrival into Wells, Ross Young from the ‘Meet and Greet’ team welcomed us at the Coach Park, gave us a brief history of the city, explained what attractions were open and obviously how to get there. Being a Wednesday, we were also able to take advantage of the ‘Eat out to Help out’ scheme.

It was market day in Wells and although it was fairly busy, the pavements were marked as a one way system.

Most of my time was spent in the Bishops Palace having alfresco lunch and visiting the beautiful historic gardens.

There were 23 of us on the Coach. We were all evenly spaced for social distancing and apart from the heavy downpour of rain an hour before we were due to leave, the day was a huge success!
Everyone said they felt safe and with all the extra new ways of travelling, it did not put anyone off. Like me, I think everyone on the trip was just grateful that we are able to get out and about again.

We have a number of similar days planned for the next few months, so if you are interested, please take a look at ALL TRIPS

Obviously, due to social distancing, we are unable to fit as many people on the coach, so please let us know if you would like to join us on any of the trips.
