Coronavirus updates

The Day Centre has reopened

A message from our Chairman

I am delighted to say that the Centre is now open after more than 4 months of lockdown. However, we are limited to the numbers that can attend to comply with social distancing, and at present the number of people we are allowed has been reached, so we cannot take any more. As this situation changes, we will update this website. I would like to thank all our staff, Members, their families and all our supporters for their loyalty and understanding at this very difficult time.
