Fresh air, fabulous coffee and furry friends

Led by lifestyle team members Pat and Fay, our Rye Sands residents headed out on a walk into town recently, visiting the Freaky Tiki café for a sip of their well-renowned coffee.

The coffees were, indeed, very good, but the highlight of the day might just have been a visit from the owner’s dogs!

The dogs sat outside with our residents (and received plenty of attention, as you would expect) while the community spent some quality time socialising outside of the home.
