Shopping Trips … and more

The Residents’ Association run a number of regular shopping trips for members to local supermarkets and to Havant.  The service is door to door making it easier for those people who are less mobile and gives more than adequate time for people to do their shopping.  Each trip allows at least an hour at the shops to ensure you have plenty of time to get what you need.  What is on offer are;

Bognor Regis shops and Morrisons
We go to Bognor town centre and Morrisons every Tuesday at 9:00am.  Unfortunately the bus has to stop in Morrisons car park, so you must be able to walk from the car park to the entrance of Morrisons, as well as walk round the store.

Out of area shopping
In 2024, we will be again visiting Havant, Midhurst, Gunwharf, Petersfield and Whiteley Shopping Village.  Please see the Minibus Trips page in Outings for the full list of dates

These trips are very popular, so please book early.  We maximise the number of people on each trip but you may have to go on a waiting list if there aren’t enough spaces available.  Typically we will call wait-listed people around 6.00pm the previous day if spaces come free.

In order to help with the costs of running the service we ask for a donation of £2.50 per person for all trips.

To reserve a place on one of these trips or for more information,
please contact John on 268768 (weekdays between 9am and 5pm)

Please note that to be able to use the minibus, you must be a member of PDRA,
live within the Association’s boundary and pre-book your trip
