Residents of Mowbray Court and Gretton Court enjoyed a holiday at home at Sage Cross Methodist Church in Melton, during August.

The purpose of the event was to help those who are unable to get away during the summer by providing a number of different themed days to keep them entertained.

Visitors experienced a trip to the seaside by eating fish, chips and ice cream and sang songs such as “I do like to be beside the seaside.” They were treated to a country garden visit where they received tips on growing plants and sampled a ploughman’s lunch.

There was also time for reflection where tales of old holidays were shared with each other before guests were treated to a roast beef dinner with all the trimmings.
