Groups take trip to the seaside and trip through time


A Redbridge social club defied the autumn weather for a seaside weekend up north earlier this month. Members of Redbridge 18 Plus enjoyed a long weekend in Scarborough, Yorkshire. The Victorian resort has two bays and a large harbour. On Saturday, they walked the south bay towards the harbour and along its bustling walls. More adventurous members chose a speedboat ride and later went seal spotting on a boat cruise along the coast. Walkers also visited the ruined castle on the hill separating the two bays to learn a bit of Scarborough history and enjoy the views. On Sunday, the north bay was explored and the group rode on a miniature steam railway to the Sealife Centre, where they saw fish, squid, sea horses and turtles. In the afternoon they visited a park and had a go on rowing boats and pedal boats on the ornamental lake. Monday morning offered the chance for a quick souvenir shop before travelling home. Member Elliot Barclay said: “It was a really enjoyable weekend with a great seaside atmosphere there were plenty of attractions to enjoy.” Redbridge 18 Plus is a social group offering organised events and trips for 18 to 40-year-olds. The group meets on Fridays at Redbridge Central Library, Clements Road, Ilford, from 8.30pm to 10pm. Everyone is welcome.
