RESIDENTS on Barry’s Coldbrook estate swapped one seaside town for another when they crossed the border to Weston-Super-Mare recently.
The Shakespeare Residents committee arranged a summer trip for the day to the seaside town Weston-Super-Mare on Friday, August 30.
Committee secretary, Tracey Adams, of Hathaway Close, said the day had begun early and the children were excited about the trip and going on a double decker coach which some had never seen before.
Tracey said: ''I've never been to the Weston-Super-Mare before so my family and myself were looking forward to going. I was impressed with what was there and the beach was massive and lovely and clean. The pier that had burnt down in 2010 had been rebuilt and was impressive with loads of stuff to do inside - especially for the kids.
“I personally enjoyed relaxing on the beach and the sand festival that was on and was amazed by some of the sculptures.
“Thankfully the sun stayed out and it was nice even though it was a bit windy. On returning to the coach the kids were talking with excitement about what they had done and the rides they had been on.”
She added: ''I'm happy the people that went on the trip enjoyed themselves and have had positive feedback from everyone asking when another trip can be arranged.
“I'd like to say thank you to Watts Coaches and their drivers Gareth and Mark for their help''.
Sue Cosh, of Avon Close, said it had been an enjoyable day and was nice to get out of Barry and a change of scenery.
Tiffany Evans, of Hathaway Place, said ''I've really enjoyed myself and the girls as well and would love to go back again''.
One senior resident, of Avon Close, said ''Weston-Super-Mare is a lovely place and brought back so many memories as she use to go there as a child.
“It was wonderful to go back so thank you for arranging it for us.''
