A few times a year we organise day outings for our members, and travel by coach/car/taxis/minibus to a variety of different places. The trips are largely funded through the PAB, but we do ask for a small donation to help cover the cost. We have trained sighted guides with us to help make the day as enjoyable as possible for you, and of course you are welcome to bring your own guide or guide dog.
Outings are a great way to meet new people and make new friends. Too many visually impaired people struggle to leave there homes and a short day trip is often a refreshing change from the same four walls. It’s also a great opportunity to visit somewhere new that you might not have thought of going before.
If you have any suggestions for where our next trip should be, please get in touch. Some of our more recent trips have included a visit to Sheringham for a ride on the steam train, Downtown near Grantham for some Christmas shipping and a day out in Hunstanton.
PAB have organised a trip on Friday 15th November to Springfields Retail Outlet at Spalding. The minibus will be leaving PAB office a 10:30am and returning at 3.30pm. For those of you who have never been to Springfields it offers a wonderful day out with something for everyone from beautifully landscaped gardens, choices of cafes and restaurants for food and drink along with various shops offering many brands at retail prices such as M&S, Pavers, Next, Clarkes, Cotton Traders and many more. There are plenty of places to sit and watch the world go by and many shops to grab those early Christmas gifts.
To book your place please call the office on 01733 344 844 and let us know if you have any requirements. The cost of this trip is £6 per person and guides go free.
