A Short History
In recent years it was noticed by the carers of the over 60’s that the people living in rural communities were not as well catered for as those living in suburban areas.
The idea of a rural Day Centre was initiated by Pat Jones. After a long period of time, with work and support from many sources, the Day Centre was finally opened in June 1994, attended by thirteen members, this soon rose to the maximum of twenty four, with all enjoying some if not all of the many activities on offer.
In August 2004 Pat Jones retired, after ten busy and happy years running the Day Centre.
In early 2007 the team, headed by Barbara Bishop, decided to bring the Day Centre into the 21st century, renaming it the West Hunts Friendship Club and opening it to all of pensionable age and adding more activities.
