CARE home residents have been treated to a day out at the seaside.

Ashcombe House care homes residents were treated to a day trip out to Southsea beach in Portsmouth.

Some of the residents of the Worting Road care home who went along had not been to the seaside in years, so it brought back many happy memories for them, care staff said, while for one resident in particular it brought memories back of his Navy days.

The residents said the fish and chips on the pier followed by ice-cream on the beach front was the highlight of the day.

Ashcombe House staff added they would like to thank the volunteers who also came along to make this day possible and for helping give the residents a day out.
