Residents from Avonbridge Care Home in Hamilton were greeted by a surprise visitor during a cruise along the canal at Kirkintilloch. The Seagull Trust run cruises along the canal all year round, and their boats are fully accessible with lifts for those with mobility issues. Therefore, this is a great way for our residents to get out and enjoy our local waterways.
In the run-up to Christmas, the Seagull Trust decorate their boats with Christmas lights and decorations. During cruises in November and early December, Santa comes aboard to spread festive cheer and to give out presents to those that have made it onto the good list.
Our residents thoroughly enjoyed their trip, reminiscing about Christmases over the years and discussing their own family traditions.
