Day Centre for the Elderley

Another year has been enjoyed by both Members and Helpers of the Day Centre.

We held our small Coffee Morning again in August and Members were picked up and brought along to meet up with friends during the long summer break, enjoy good company, have a good chat with a cup of tea/coffee and lovely home-made cakes. All took part in the Raffle, and we had the customary Bring and Buy Table. Thanks to all who made this possible with donations and help on the day.

We also had our Harvest Service in September, which was again much enjoyed by our Members, with readings and the traditional harvest songs, with members providing tins of produce for the Food Bank.

We did not have the traditional Summer Outing this year, but instead had fish and chips and a lovely pudding, on site. We hope to have our more traditional Summer Outing in 2018 with a trip to Highfield Nurseries for a look round and lunch.

Our delicious Christmas Dinner was cooked by Dawn Pearman, and the Christmas Pudding was made and donated by Irene Egles. The normal crew of helpers assisted with preparation and waitressing the meal, and very important band of helpers assisted with the washing up. This was followed by entertainment provided by the Upton W.I. Choir with traditional Christmas carols and songs. The Christmas cake was again kindly made by Joan Edwards and minse pies were provided by the Committee. All the Members were given a Christmas present and card and a pot of bulbs from the Junior Boys Brigade.

Our membership stands at 10, with one of our lovely ladies - Lucy - celebrating her 100th birthday in January 2018.

We are always in need of volunteers for cooking, driving and caring, so if you feel able to help, please contact any of the Committee.

Nothing can separate us from the love of God. Romans 8:39
