 The Day Centre (also known as “The Wednesday Club” is open approximately 44 Wednesdays a year and is held at the Community Centre in the Maltings, Staithe Street.   Anyone over 60 is welcome but unfortunately we are unable to cope with severely disabled people as we do not have the facilities or staff available to offer adequate care.

We are officially open from 9.30am but Members of the Club usually start arriving about 9.45am and the mornings are spent socialising, having a cuppa, playing triominoes or doing craft work .   We have lunch at noon followed by a raffle and the afternoon is spent playing a few games of bingo or enjoying some entertainment  and another cuppa.

 We usually have a couple of outings each year.   This year we have a mystery tour in August and a trip to Yarmouth in September.  The highlight of the year is the Christmas party when we are visited by the small children from Wells Primary School with their nativity play, some of the choir from Alderman Peel school, a local choral society and, of course, Santa.

The cost for lunch is £2.50  and membership is 30p.  Social Services transport is available by arrangement, the cost for this is £1.50 unless the person requiring transport is already a client of the Social Services and paying for other help (i.e. home help) in which case the transport is free.

We are shut for 2 weeks at Christmas, 2 weeks at Easter and during August.

If anybody is interested in joining us, please contact Lynne at 01328 711425.
