COATS staff get on their bikes to cheer up Visitors isolating at home

The COATS Centre for seniors in Crowthorne is closed until further notice due to the covid-19 epidemic.

All of the regular visitors have been in isolation in their homes or with their families for more than 8 weeks and are missing their friends and the staff at COATS. 

Two of the intrepid care staff Julie Chaplin and Donna Corney-Gibbons decided to use their daily exercise to pay a visit to a selection of Visitors around Crowthorne.

They spent the morning cycling around the village saying hello to a small selection of the seniors who would usually be spending their day at the COATS Centre.

Julie said that everyone was very happy to see them and social distancing was observed at all times.

The pair were even able to lead a chorus of Happy Birthday for one of the regulars with a number of the residents of the senior citizens complex at Copenhagen Walk. If the good weather continues, they plan to do this on a regular basis.

Unfortunately at the end of the visits Julie suffered a puncture and had to walk the two miles to her home in Sandhurst.
