The opening day offered a morning session with Movement to Music, followed by a delicious three course Christmas lunch and then in the afternoon the children from Dulverton First School came to entertain the guests with carols and music. This was followed by a surprise visit from Father Christmas who kindly gave out lots of presents to both school children and guests.
Community Council for Somerset Village Agent Caroline Harding has been supporting Hanover Court Manager Mike Stables over the past few months to re-open a community day centre for Dulverton residents and neighbouring parishes. The day centre is open every Friday from 10am to 3pm to the community; it offers a morning Movement to Music session, three-course lunch, guest speakers, crafts and bingo.
Caroline Harding said: “It is such an achievement to have this day centre available to the community and I am so impressed with the range of activities Hanover Court is offering.”
Somerset Village Agents live and work in their local area, making them perfectly placed to support groups to set up, grow and flourish. Village Agents also provide support for individuals to improve the quality of life of people living in rural areas.
If anyone is interested in attending the Friends of Hanover Court day centre which is held every Friday, or is interested in volunteering at the day centre please contact either Mike Stables of Hanover Court on 01398 324076 or Caroline Harding, Village Agent on 07908 160733.
