On Thursday September 10 the activities team took three residents on a day trip to Brooklands Museum in Weybridge. A fabulous sunny day was equalled by the stunning collection of racing cars, motorbikes, cycles, buses and aircraft that are on permanent display at the museum.

The residents marvelled at the latest formula one racing cars as well as taking a tour through a vast collection of vintage motor vehicles. Arguably, the centre piece of the tour is Concorde which still to this day looks imposing and is a feat of sublime engineering.

Resident, Dennis Graney found the collection of racing cycles particularly enthralling. As a keen cyclist Dennis and his wife took to the road often on long distance journeys on a tandem across the South of England.

Dennis on his first visit to the Museum said: “What a marvellous museum. I really enjoyed the London Buses collection and the cycles. They have a FH Grubb vintage cycle which is very similar to one of the cycles I once had.”

Residents of Cedar Court are very often seen out and about across Surrey and beyond. Michael Gains, Activities Coordinator, said: “Days out are vitally important to many of our residents. We are fortunate to have our own mini bus, which, believe me, gets plenty of use!”
