About Us

The  group meets on Monday and Friday's from 9.30am - 2.30pm  at the Riverside Club, Bath Road, Near  Waitrose, and caters for senior citizens and younger persons who have a  disability, and is fully accessible, including a wheelchair accessible  toilet.     What do we do? We  commence with tea and coffee giving members time to socialise and catch up on  each other's news. We have some lighthearted activities to give members the  opportunity to stretch their legs and practice their skills, and this is  followed by other activities to stimulate the mind. Members are asked  to bring a small gift which then enables us to have a raffle, and everyone is  a winner!     Lunch follows at 12 noon  - traditional home cooked two course, followed by tea or coffee.      The afternoon brings further activities  and usually concludes with 'Eyes Down' for a session of bingo.    Our organiser is supported by a group of  dedicated volunteers - she can be contacted on 07762 189708 or 07799  511931.        Transport can be provided  to and from the Centre for persons living in the Melksham area, including  Bowerhill, Shaw & Whitley and Berryfield.     Our sessional charge in 2020 is£7  with an additional £4 where transport is provided. In some cases a  supplementary fee of£3 may also apply.     We also arrange four outings throughout  the year, suitable for all members to participate, including a scenic drive  and a pub lunch, and sometimes something extra! We also aim to have  special celebrations at  Christmas and  major festivals such as Burns Night, St David and St George's Days, Pancake  Day etc.    

The Rainbow Day  Centre operates with minimal staff and relies upon the support of dedicated  volunteers to assist members to gain maximum benefit from their attendance at  the Centre, and in the provision of transport to and from the Centre, for  which a mileage payment is made.
