LANGHOLM Day Centre has delivered more than 10,000 meals its members over the past 12 months.
The good news is that the centre plans to reopen for lunches on May 17 as long as the COVID-19 situation continues to improve.
As we reflect on the year past, we thank those who have worked tirelessly throughout, providing care and services from NHS staff to key workers. The day centre is no exception.
John Hammond, chairman, has praised the centre staff who have worked continuously through the challenges of furlough, sickness and necessary isolation to ensure their services have prevailed.
As with many businesses, the centre closed its doors to hosting in March 2020.
Without delay, operations were swiftly adapted and meals, newsletters, games and quizzes brought cheer to many in the town.
Sandra Graham, manager, is proud of the staff and their resilience. They have stepped up to ensure the valuable support continues.
She said: “We’re delighted that, if the coronavirus situation continues in the right direction, we will open for lunches on May 17.
“Initially, we will be open to small numbers only and be closed to walk-ins. It is important that we prioritise the safety of our members at this time.
“Thanks also to everyone for their support during the year. We’re very grateful for all their kind donations.”
