Barnfield: £913 for excursions for elderly residents
Barnfield is a residential home for the elderly in Horley. The home cares for all the needs of the residents and is able to provide some recreational activities for residents at the home. This project is to hire a bus with wheelchair access and driver for 'day trips' for residents in the summer, to RHS gardens, National Trust properties and the seaside. Approximately twelve residents would be able to go on each trip, accompanied by staff attending in a voluntary capacity, and carers. Five trips are planned, one a month from May 2009 - September 2009.
