Watercress Line tea and scones trip

Choo Choo!

Another amazing trip on the The Watercress Line for our members who were joined by other people living with dementia from across Hampshire. Serving 41 cream teas as we bustled to Alresford and back, making new friends, singing our favourite songs and waving to the tiny school children on the platform at Ropley - such joy.

Thank you volunteers of the Mid-Hants Railway (Alton Station) who were so helpful to us during our trip and to Tesco Express who kindly donated some cakes for our afternoon tea - great support from the local community as always.
