The Day Centre here at the Huntington & Langham Estate has gone from strength to strength over the past 18 months and continues to offer all sorts of activities for everyone. During the summer months, we spent a great deal of time outside tending to the high raised beds – we were growing lettuce and beetroot that was later enjoyed as fresh filling for ham and salad rolls, which were both made and eaten by those attending the Day Centre.
We had a wonderful year here in 2018, with highlights including our brilliant tea dance in the summer, our day trip to Hayling Island, complete with fish & chips and ice cream, regular performances from Kevin the pianist and weekly visits from the children at St. Edmund’s School. We finished off the year by putting together shoebox gifts for members of the community, packed with all sorts of Christmas goodies, including biscuits, sweets, Christmas decorations, soup tins and an invitation to join us for afternoon tea and entertainment here at Langham Court – and we then held a Christmas party and carol concert to draw 2018 to an end.
We currently have vacancies for the Day Centre on both Tuesdays and Thursdays – if you would like to book a place, please contact Vee Hey on 01428 606 143. Sessions run from 10:30am until 3:30pm, costing just £55 per day, and include a wide variety of activities along with a three-course meal, refreshments and homemade cakes.
If you’d like to come and see the Day Centre for yourself before committing to come along, we’re pleased to announce that we’re holding an Open Day on Tuesday 19th February from 11am until 3pm, and we’d love to see you there to answer any questions you may have and show you around.
