The summer outing to Brighton on 16th August began on a beautiful clear day. However whilst it was bright, it was far from warm at 9.30am!
The members of the Peer Support Team met their parties at Stevenage, St. Albans and Watford. The journey was straight forward and took in wonderful views of our capital city such as St Paul’s cathedral, the Shard and London Bridge.
We arrived in Brighton having got to know each other a little better after sharing much laughter, and ready for a day by the sea.
Brighton is situated on the south coast of England, with some wonderful points of interest such as the Royal Pavilion, the Pier, the Brighton Wheel and the infamous “Lanes”, providing a treasure trove of shopping opportunities catering for all walks of life.
Parties had travelled from different parts of Hertfordshire, but we were all assembled by 12.30 and ready for lunch, so we made our way towards the famous pebble beach and more eating options, and settled on freshly caught and prepared fish and chips.
After lunch we made our way to the busy seafront which was bursting with beach life and sport, but there were also tranquil spaces. However all enjoyed the basketball and sizzling good tunes that pulsated from the arches on the beach … it is rumoured that some of our party were even seen to be dancing!!
