You may have seen Hattie, one of our original open top Skegness Seasiders out and about taking people to all the fun places whilst they're on holiday.  Well, now you can ‘Get Chatty with Hattie’  as she embarks on a new adventure as a community bus. 

Hattie has been redesigned to promote a safe place for people to come along and chat with seating areas and tables, tea and coffee making facilities, a children’s Wendy house, games, chalkboard and magnetic wall games. She has been adapted to host families and the elderly, encouraging the community to come together.

The initiative is part of our efforts to offer support and advice about mental health. Hattie is one way in which we hope to support those in the wider community.

Look out for Hattie as she  tours the East Midlands, supporting in our efforts to bring communities together, promote health and well-being and provide an important space for families and children, as well as older people, to meet, take part in fun activities, and ‘get chatty with Hattie!'
