The White Horse Day Centre recently celebrated its tenth birthday, meeting as usual at the Grassacres Hall.
All of the members received a small gift to celebrate the occasion, had a turkey lunch, a piece of birthday cake and shared a few moments remembering the last ten years; during this time in the region of over 20,000 lunches have been produced.
Guest of honour was the Reverend Graham Warmington who formed the club back in 1999. Graham recently stepped down as chair of the Day Centre committee, handing over to Kerry Eatwell with whom he had worked closely on the BA13 community group.
Kerry said, “Graham has tirelessly given the group inspiration and leadership throughout the last 10 years. Thank you Graham for your guidance and friendship.
“Not only celebrating 10 years existence, that would not have been possible without the support of the team involved in making the club so welcoming to all members and a vital activity to the community, we sadly said goodbye to Graham, who is moving to continue his contribution to the society based around Winkleigh, their gain is our loss.”
“To Daphne Lyons who with the team look after us so well, thank you for serving the club so well, 10 years is a long time, let us see if another 10 is possible. Graham, you have set an example that we will all try to maintain, thank you. ”
