We are a small day centre, providing companionship, entertainment and food for our elderly service users four days a week Monday - Thursday. We set out to collect people at 9.15 and bring them into the centre. They are given tea and toast and then we do our morning activity until lunch. After a home cooked lunch, we start our afternoon activity before embarking on the journey home at 3 pm. Drivers are vital for our service and are welcome to stay all day and join in the activities and have lunch with us.
