This year Ferryhill’s Annual Senior Citizen’s Trip will take place on Thursday 28th July 2022. The destination for this year’s trip will be Whitby. This was the preferred destination indicated by questionnaires completed by those attending the trip in 2021.
Ferryhill Town Council would like to say a huge thank you to local Company Supportive, who have kindly contributed £1,200 to the cost of this year’s coaches, which has enabled the Town Council to offer the trip completely FREE of charge to residents of the Town aged 65 years and over.
Ferryhill residents over 65 years wanting to attend the trip are invited to pick up free early bird tickets from Ferryhill Town Hall from Monday 20th June 2022. Tickets will then be made available to the wider community from Monday 4th July 2022 onwards subject to availability and at a cost of £5 for adults and £3 for children aged 13 years and under.
Coaches will meet in Ferryhill Market Place from 9.00am and will leave for Whitby at 9.30am. Tickets must be shown prior to boarding the buses.
Coaches will leave Whitby for the return journey to Ferryhill at 5.00pm and will drop off at various points on the main bus route around Ferryhill.
Town Mayor, Councillor Carole Atkinson said ‘It’s a privilege to be able to work in partnership with Supportive. The Town Council is extremely grateful for their support, and thoroughly look forward to working with the organisation again on future initiatives.’
Chair of Ferryhill Town Council’s Events Committee, Councillor Joe Quinn said ‘As the Chair of the Events Committee I would like to say a big thank you to Supportive for their kind donation, which has made it possible for the Town Council to offer Senior Citizens from Ferryhill the opportunity to attend this year’s Trip FREE of charge.’
Tracy Hutchinson of Supportive said “Our aim at Supportive has been the same for 28 years, ‘Helping people to achieve a better quality of life’. Supporting the older people of Ferryhill to get out and have fun after so many restrictions is a very good use of our Barclays 100×100 funds.”
