Four residents from The Lodge in Walton on the Naze enjoyed a trip to the Essex Fire Museum in Grays.

As part of their commitment to providing interesting and stimulating activities for all their residents, they were invited by the museum to visit them for a guided tour and lunch. Four residents jumped at the opportunity and were accompanied on the trip by some of the care team from the home.

The museum is on the site of an operational fire station on Hogg Lane in Grays, where the museum volunteer team has created a fascinating collection featuring historic fire engines, firefighting equipment, uniforms and photographs. Visitors to the museum learn about how firefighting has changed over the years as the technology has advanced.

Robin, one of The Lodge’s residents thoroughly enjoyed his day out: “It was magnificent, a wonderful day out. I highly enjoyed the museum, very interesting and the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable.”

Myra Cabacungan is our Activities Co-Ordinator at The Lodge: “We had a super day. It was lovely to see our residents enjoying themselves and the team at Essex Fire Museum were so helpful and supportive.”
