Please Note

The Riverside Centre is now open for day care services.

Due to the changes with socially distancing we are having to change the way in which we operate.  The number of people that can use the centre per day is now reduced, therefore there will not be the facility to drop in.  All people using the centre have been allocated a day to attend and have formed bubbles, therefore attending with the same people each week.  We do have very limited spaces left for day care services – to check for availability please call the centre on 01304 207268.

Facilities at the day centre include a snack bar where you can purchase food & drink (to include takeaway items) and a 2 course lunch.  Activities are currently limited whilst we are practicing being COVID-19 safe.

Lunch Club

A lunch club will run every Monday and Friday at the centre for people who would like to come in for a two course lunch and a hot drink.  As numbers are limited it is advisable to book in advance for this lunch club.
