• Bomber Command Centre, Lincoln.

The gents of Apple Trees Care Centre in Grantham enjoyed a trip to the International Bomber Command Centre in Lincoln to mark the launch of a new monthly Gents’ Club.

The International Bomber Command Centre opened in 2017 and acts as a point of recognition and remembrance to those who served during the second world war and to commemorate the contribution of servicemen from Lincolnshire.

Residents toured the exhibition centre and then paused in the grounds outside beneath the magnificent spire, officially the UK’s tallest war memorial. The spire looks over the city of Lincoln and provides a beautiful view of the city.

After sharing memories from the time over drinks in the coffee shop, the gents went on to lunch at a local pub and enjoyed more time catching up before heading back to Apple Trees for the afternoon.

Apple Trees’ General Manager Denise Booth said: “We’re delighted to have launched our Gents’ Club at such a wonderful facility as the International Bomber Command Centre. The gentlemen enjoyed their day out and are thoroughly looking forward to the next Gents’ Club outing in September.”

The next Gents’ Club will see residents visiting a Sporting Memories afternoon hosted by Lincoln City FC and Age UK.
