"OH I do like to be beside the seaside!"
That's what more than 260 Matson and White City residents were singing yesterday as they headed off on a free coach trip to Weston-super-Mare.
Community group Together in Matson organised the trip and laid on four coaches from Matson, while Jerry Jenkinson put on one from White City.
Vanessa Worrall, project manager of the Redwell Centre-based group, said: "We did it because we wanted to bring the community together.

"They had a great time, there was a mix of ages from toddlers to pensioners."
The trip was funded by Gloucester City Council, Gloucester City Homes, The Gateway, and Matson and Robinswood resident group.
