Kids Out Day 2019
The Club were delighted to bring 20 children and 15 members of staff and parents from Mitchell House for this year's Kids Out Day to W5 at the Odyssey on Wednesday 19 June. On arrival, the children enjoyed a snack and refreshments in the lovely new café with superb views across to the Titanic Museum.
Next stop was Level 4 and AMAZE, the new technological space incorporating large multi-screen projections (the one involving dinosaurs was particularly good), and a range of special, sensory and physical effects. Then we were back to Level 2 which is a specially themed environment that encourages the children to imagine and explore, but above all to have fun. The children enjoyed painting on a digital canvas, flicking through storybooks in the castle, and shopping in the local Spar.
It did not seem to be long before it was time for lunch in Pizza Hut. Pizza and chicken nuggets were the order of the day with the adults also enjoying some pizza from the buffet, helping to re-charge flagging batteries.
The Mitchell House Summer Outing is always a pleasure to organise, the children and staff are wonderful and it is impossible to leave without feeling uplifted and in a good mood. As always thanks are extended to Club members Past President Brian Clements, John McCleery and William Cross for attending.
