National Walking Month sees elderly visit Blyth Quayside

By 31st May, 2018 Press Releases No Comments

NATIONAL Walking Month has been celebrated by elderly Blyth residents with a trip to the Quayside.

The residents from The Oaks Care Home, on Durban Street, strolled along the harbour and reminisced about how it looked in the past.

They visited The Commissioners Quay Inn for coffee, where they were treated to free biscuits from generous staff.

One resident, Nancy Forsyth, also paid a visit to her old neighbourhood, where she lived on Gladstone Street.

She said: “My mother used to live at number six. I have a lot of happy memories from living there and it’s not really changed much.”

Fellow resident Elsie Scattergood said: “It has been lovely to get out for a long walk, despite the chilly breeze.”

Ann Mielnik, home manager at The Oaks Care Home, said: “Celebrating National Walking Month has brought back so many happy memories for our residents.

“It was also nice to get out and about for some fresh air and exercise and to visit the local businesses on the Quayside. They were so friendly, I’m sure we’ll be back.”
