Off for a safari
To keep our Heathcotes properties in great condition we sometimes need to do maintenance. When this is happening it is a great excuse to take some of our service users out for the day which is why Elizabeth got to plan an adventure for herself.
After spending some time with Laura, her support worker, browsing the internet for different days out it was clear that the West Midland Safari Park was Elizabeth's favourite option.
On the big day everyone was up early and once their picnic preparation had been completed and packed into the car, the day out began. The park was very busy and driving through gave Elizabeth plenty of time to look at all the animals and make use of the animal reference cards she brought along to help identify which animal was which. Lots of photographs were taken of the animals to match up with the reference cards and when Elizabeth was back at Heathcotes Kirby Muxloe time was spent putting the photos into her 2014 Summertime book. Now all there is to do is add in some drawings of the animals!
