Notes / History Morden and Charshalton Children's Outing to Littlehampton.

It was not until the late 1950's and early '60s that families began to take extended holidays. During the '50s, a number of charitable organisations and parish groups organised coach outings to coastal towns such as Brighton and Littlehampton. These included excursions for local children, featuring trips to the beach, picnics and pier entertainment.
