The charity took members to a number of tourist spots in Norfolk so that they could enjoy a day in the sunshine.

First stop was at Norfolk Lavender, then Heacham for coffee, shopping and a stroll around the grounds, then on to Old Hunstanton where they had lunch at The Ancient Mariner and the rest of the afternoon in the gardens.

One of the members said: "What a lovely day we have all had, we look forward to the next one."
