Virtual trip around Trowbridge
Ashwood Care Centre resident Colin Clark described a virtual ‘YouTube’ tour of Trowbridge with Activities Co-ordinator Natalie Fletcher, as ‘lovely’. Colin’s smile grew even bigger as the film approached Ashmead, the street where he lived. Colin thought it was hilarious as they viewed one of his neighbours’ house through a Estate Agent’s website.
After viewing the house, they went to watch the barges on the canal. Natalie said: “It really is surprising where you can go on YouTube, we do a fair bit of traveling!”
Margaret’s daughter brought her lovely dog Lulabelle when she came to visit her mum at Marden Court. We can’t tell who was more pleased to see who!
