Our Social Programme

Being near the coast means we can offer a wide range of activities and visits and our region has loads to offer. Our summer activities programme for under 18s is included in their fee. Any over 18s who want to join us are most welcome and you can get an idea of what’s on offer and a rough guide to prices by downloading our sample activities programme HERE.
