JS stands for Jet Setter!
JS, a service user at Heathcotes Mansfield, certainly enjoys his travels. Last year Heathcotes accompanied him on a ferry trip to the continent, visiting an authentic German Christmas market in the historic centre of Cologne. Most recently he fancied taking in another vibrant European city, heading north of the border to enjoy the sights and sounds of Edinburgh.
JS and his support team packed plenty into the weekend, including a visit to Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Abbey and Edinburgh Zoo, where they came face to face with all kinds of creatures, from tigers to penguins. They also explored the murky depths of Edinburgh Dungeon, once home to many of the most notorious figures in the city’s rich history.
JS and his support team had a fantastic time in Edinburgh and the journey to the city proved to be every bit as memorable. Having taken a ferry to Cologne, JS took a different mode of transport to the Scottish capital with his first trip on a plane. His flying experience was extra special as the captain invited JS into the cockpit! We were very grateful to the Flybe crew for their generosity.
Having established a liking for air travel, JS could turn into a real Jet Setter!
