Today Matthew was going to his day service. As it was a bank holiday we had a day trip planned. Mathew got up around 08:00 and had toast and orange juice for breakfast. Just before 09;00 the bus appeared to pick up Matthew.... It was Shelton Care Group DV10 JCU.

We got on the bus and we sat down. We set off down to the A5035 were we turned left. We turned left onto Church Road and at the roundabout we turned left onto Blurton Road. We joined the Eastbound A50 and we then turned left onto the A50 link Road and we ran up to City Road. We turned left and we ran to Glebedale Road and turned left and to our destination. After a quick stop it was back onto the minibus for a run down to the RAF museum at Cosford. We set off onto Glebedale Road and we turned left onto City Road. We ran down the hill towards the railway line and we saw First Potteries 65727 on a #25 service to Hanley. We ran under the railway line on the A52 and we joined the Southbound A500. We traveled down past past hanford over the A34 and we joined the Southbound M6 at Hanchurch. As we travled down the M6 we saw an unidentified The Travellers Choice coach and Mainline YN07 EXV. We came of the M5 at Junction 12 ans we went East on the A5. At the first set of traffic light we went right onto Vicarage Road and through Four Ashes. We joined the Southbound A449 and we ran a couple of miles to the M54. We joined the Westbound M54 and we came off at Junction 3. We went South and we parked up at the museum. Matthew went to the toilet and then they walked around the museum looking at planes. One such example was this Dominie jet XS709.

For dinner they decided to visit a nearby KFC in Arleston. We got back onto Shelton Care Group DV10 JCU and we ran back to the M54 and we ran West 3 junctions to the other side of Telford to the Wrekin Retail Park. We came off the M54 and we ran North up the A5233 and into the Retail Park. Matthew went to the toilet and than had chicken popcorn and fries washed down with a cup of Coke. After Matthew had finished eating we walked around the retail park. Matthew visited Homebase and then Pets at Home. In Pets at Home Matthew saw some rats.
