Residents of Downshaw Lodge hit the shops and the markets

Ashton-under-Lyne market and chain stores were the focus of a day out for residents of Downshaw Lodge.

They took taxis to the town and enjoyed fish and chips in a restaurant. Purchases included new clothes and fresh fruit and vegetables from market stalls in the historic shopping centre.

Our residents enjoyed looking round the market, which had been recently refurbished, reminiscing about times they spent shopping there in years gone by – and having a chat and a joke with fellow diners in the restaurant.

More trips out are planned, based on residents’ requests.
