NOTE THAT DURING THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC ALL CENTRAL CLUB MEETINGS ARE SUSPENDED
The Central Club for the Retired meets every Wednesday (except in August). Members can play Scrabble, buy coffee, find bargains on the Bring and Buy stall and chat with other members. The first few minutes are taken up with announcements, birthdays and, because we are a Christian group, a short act of worship, usually a song, prayer and sometimes, a reading. However on the first Wednesday of each month we have a programme, which includes speakers, choirs, soloists, exercise, entertainers etc.
At 12.30 members who stay for lunch enjoy a two course meal. This meal is cooked on the premises by volunteer cooks from The Reading Central Salvation Army.
We usually have two day trips a year and of course Christmas Dinner. But we also enjoy other celebrations during the year. The subscription is at present £4.00 per week.
All retired people are welcome to join the club. You do not need to have any religious affiliation. If you are lonely, would enjoy a warm friendly atmosphere, where you can widen your circle of friends and be entertained, you might like to try us out. Just arrive!
