The summer holidays are almost here, and we want to inspire families everywhere on destinations they can choose to visit here in the UK! Many of us may still feel hesitant to go abroad, but you still deserve a little time ‘away’ with your loved ones.
Along with dreamy destinations, we’ll be letting you know where to get all the essentials from. We’re talking sunscreen, travel pillows and clothes to stay cosy in…
We have a few options for you to choose from…
– Lundy Island, Devon
– Snowdonia, Wales
– Dedham, Essex
– Shropshire Hills, Shropshire
– Lake District, Cumbria
These locations are dotted with history, totally picturesque and are perfect for the family that want to spend quality time relaxing with nature, on beaches or near stunning cliff sides.
Be sure to grab all the essentials you’ll need for your UK vacay – if you’re unsure on what you should be taking with you, we’re here to break it down for you. Keep reading!
KEEP IT COSY
Now, you’ll probably be doing quite a lot of walking if you’re hiking up green mountains or travelling to historical buildings from one part of a town to another, so comfy clothes and shoes are a MUST.
It’s always a good option to have good train or car snacks for the journey, plus – going somewhere where you’re not 100% on the food in the local area is a bit risky. Packing crisps, pot noodles and other fun foodie options will potentially help when you need a midnight snack.
THE HANDBAG ESSENTIALS
You know the essentials we’re talking about:
And the list goes on, of course!
Sometimes it’s a good idea to pack a few extra activities for the kids (and yourself) to enjoy while you’re away from home luxuries.
We think a pack of cards as well as smaller toys from Poundland will keep all parties occupied. If you want to go ALL OUT, you could grab a few bits from Tesco too – whether it’s a badminton set, football or water guns if you know the sun will be shining.
For the parents, we think a sophisticated colouring book from WHSmith would be a fabulous idea to gain a little ‘zen’ in the evenings. Don’t forget to pick up a colourful pack of pencils too.
Now, if you’re staying within (or near) the UK, we hope we’ve given you a few ideas to work with. We look forward to seeing you at the centre, picking up all the essentials you may need from Chesterfield Pavements. Don’t forget to continue #ShoppingSafe too – keep that facemask on and a 2-metre distance where possible.
We were established in the shopping precinct in 2003 and have built up a growing business of loyal patients who happily return each year. Watson & Jenkins Opticians has a well known reputation for having a professional, caring attitude, where everyone is treated as individuals in a friendly atmosphere.
Every attention is given to ensure we listen to our patient’s needs so that everyone is fully satisfied with the service they receive. Time is no problem, so people who need more time spending on them never feel rushed through the process of eye examinations and choosing of spectacles.
As we are independent opticians, we are not restricted to any company guidelines, so if anyone has any specific needs we can usually accommodate their individual wishes.
We are very experienced in contact lens fitting, both soft and gas permeables, with very competitive prices.
Our very experienced staff will give you a warm greeting when you first arrive and gently guide you through the examination process in a friendly calm atmosphere.
We have around 1400 frames to choose from with a large choice of quality free frames (lenses are also free with an NHS voucher if you are a student or claiming benefits for single vision or bifocals, with varifocals just £20 extra). Watson & Jenkins Opticians also have a large selection of designer frames at great prices, so there is something for everyone.
We pride ourselves on giving a professional, caring service, listening attentively to our patients to provide the quality eye care you deserve. When our patients return for their routine check-up it’s like seeing a good friend again, and our patients appreciate seeing the same people who looked after them on their previous visit.
A warm welcome awaits you, too!
