Sidmouth Folk Festival – Monday 1st August 2022
Sidmouth is a beautiful seaside town which is a pleasure to visit at any time of the year, but the town really comes to life for the annual Sidmouth Folk Festival on the first week of August.
We welcome Carers and Cared fors on this trip, but there will be a limit of one cared for per Carer.
Christmas shopping in Exeter – Monday 28th November 2022
Enjoy a day wandering around the streets of Exeter; the Christmas Market will be in full flow. If you don’t fancy shopping; there is the Royal Albert Memorial Museum just a stone’s throw away; or the historic underground passages that run underneath the heart of Exeter city centre.
Travel to and from this trip will be on the train, from either Paignton, Torre, or Torquay stations. Carers Aid will pay for your travel to and from Exeter Central station. Exeter Central station as the name suggests is in the centre of Exeter minutes from the main shopping area and the Royal Albert Memorial Museum.
Details of the two trips we are hosting for Carers Week in June, will be available in the April edition of Signpost for Carers.
