The Ascot District Day Centre has been a home from home for the elderly of Sunninghill, Ascot and Sunningdale for more than thirty years keeping elderly residents in the neighbourhood alert and active, by providing an opportunity to meet friends and to socialise, in a structured and safe environment.
A team of volunteer drivers transport members by minibus to and from the Centre. Coffee is served on arrival and a hot two course meal at lunchtime with tea and biscuits in the afternoon. Each weekday morning the Day Centre is a hive of activity with members playing darts or indoor bowls while others join in Tai-Chi or Chair Based dance classes, or quietly socialise in the conservatory with friends. After lunch there are usually a few rounds of bingo, a quiz or a raffle, while others prefer a game of cards.
The North Ascot Drop In, founded by Jane Moss and still runs - 17 years later - by Jane & Geoff Moss and others, meets on Wednesday afternoons in the North Ascot Community Centre, Fernbank Road, North Ascot. Geoff Moss was recently honoured for his community work, by being selected to receive Maundy Money from H M The Queen.
The Drop In will also be honoured with a visit from a very special guest - the Bishop of Oxford - on Wednesday April 17th.
Many people have become regulars at the group, but new people are always very welcome to enjoy tea, chat and homemade cakes. As well as the weekly get-togethers, the group enjoys outings and parties, such as Christmas and birthday parties, and day trips to the Kennet and Avon Canal - not forgetting last year's huge Diamond Jubilee party ( CLICK to see report).
The North Ascot Drop In receives donations from major sponsors such as Ascot Round Table, as well as the Waitrose Community Matters scheme. The group also raises money itself, with Bring & Buy sales and similar events.
So ! Why not pop in to the Drop In ! You'll be very welcome!Read more: Ascot Drop In | Wednesdays | N. Ascot Community Centre
