New shop opening hours – Mon-Fri 10.00am till 3.00pm

Although the Wade Day Centre is still currently closed, we have been busy delivering gift bags over the last few days, filled with goodies and treats to our Members.

Many of them live alone or have been in isolation for months, and we just wanted to let them know that we are missing and thinking about them all. They have all been thrilled to receive them - and we have really enjoyed delivering them and being able to see them at a distance. Huge thanks to Tesco Wokingham and Waitrose & Partners Wokingham for their generosity and very kind donations that helped us to achieve this.

We hope to be able to re-open again soon when it’s safe to do so. #staysafe


We would like to thank Yateley Men's Shed for their kindness and generosity in providing Wade with face shields/visors in preparation for staff to wear when we do finally re-open.

Many thanks to John and the team for their hard work and efforts in making and supplying these vital pieces of equipment.
