The future of Old Windsor Day Centre is hanging in the balance.

Falling membership at the centre which provides lunches and companionship for more than 100 older villagers has caused a crisis. Now the committee that runs the charity is to meet on February 28 to decide if the centre can carry on.

Its manager of more than 20 years Julie White and her deputy Tracey Chaplin, who has been there five years, could lose their jobs.

Old Windsor Parish Council has a member Chris Andrews on the committee. But Cllr Lynne Jones, who represents the village on the Royal Borough as well as on its parish council, said: "We are watching the situation but can't really become involved as a parish council unless we are asked.

"We will not really know more until the charity's committee has met. They may want to consider opening up the Day Centre to other organisations. All we can do is wait with baited breath."
