ACE members, care workers and volunteers travelled to Cockington on 23rd May for their annual outing. The weather was perfect and we all arrived at 11 am. We looked around the craft shops of the Sea Change Studios. These included bridal accessories, florist, leather goods, ceramics mosaics, textiles and of course chocolate. We then had coffee and then went off to explore the Stable Yard studios. Here you could see and buy craft goods made from driftwood and slate. There was also a maker of wooden toys, a goldsmith, blacksmith and glass blower, You could buy unique gifts or special works of art and amazing handcrafted jewellery. Then it was back for a sandwich and cake lunch. Coffee, lunch and a guided tour were all provided by The Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust and we send a big thank you to them.
After lunch we went down to Cockington Court and while we were waiting for our guide we had drinks and ice cream. Our guide took us along the drive and told us the fascinating history of Cockington Court. One of the horse and carriages passed and stopped to say hello. It was then time to make our way back up to the car park to meet up with the taxis and bus for our trip home. It was a wonderful day out. Once again thank you to the Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust for arranging the trip and providing the coffee, lunch and a guide.
