A village day centre forced to close last year when declining numbers caused a financial crisis is continuing its successful 'comeback' - by opening for a third day each week.
Old Windsor Day Centre in Straight Road closed its doors after 23 years last March. But following the involvement of the charity Age Concern Slough and Berkshire East, it reopened in June on an experimental 'two day a week' basis.
The 200 people who turned up for the re-opening heard the charity's chief executive Tracey Morgan say that the Tuesday and Thursday openings were just the start.
She was right.
Starting this week the centre will now open on Friday as well from 9am to 3pm, offering a two course meal for just £5, as well as a range of activities. It is open to all over 50s.
