Summer excitement for St. Jude’s Church Nursery
St. Jude’s Church Nursery, an established popular nursery in Southsea, took their children on a series of summer outings with Hovertravel.
Sharon Riley, Room Leader at St. Jude’s Church Nursery, explained: “For children who are just three or four years old, summer outings are very exciting and as we have the world’s only passenger hovercraft service on our doorstep, we wanted to include a flight across the Solent as part of the day.
We are the first nursery to book a series of trips with Hovertravel and they have been the perfect hosts, providing stickers, certificates as well as a hello from the pilot!”Hovertravel’s fully accessible 78-seater hovercraft cross the Solent more than twice as fast as any other ferry operator and can provide a tailored experience for groups of all ages. Optional add-ons can include a 15-minute hovercraft demonstration, a question-and-answer session with the pilot and crew and the chance to meet Henri the HoverBear.
Loretta Lale, Head of Commercial at Hovertravel, added: “Seeing the excitement as the children board our hovercraft is very rewarding for everyone at Hovertravel, knowing that they will always remember their first flight with us. From our very first summer back in 1965, we have been family friendly and today we still welcome all ages, from school children crossing every day of term to A Level students studying engineering on a STEM visit.”
