Hopes are rising that Old Windsor Day Centre could have a future.

A meeting is to be held on Friday at which representatives of the charity Age Concern will meet representatives of the Old Windsor Parish Council and the Royal Borough to discuss the centre.

It will take place just a week after the existing management committee voted unanimously to wind up the charity that runs the centre.

Age Concern has indicated that it might fill the breach. Tracey Morgan, the chief executive of its Slough and Berkshire East branch, said: "There is a strong will to get something up and running."

Membership at the day centre has declined from 300 in its heyday after it was opened by the Queen more than 20 years ago to just 127. Some members are now over 90 and much needed younger members in the 60 plus age group are not coming forward.
