HENLEY SENIOR CITIZENS
Henley Senior Citizens meet fortnightly on a Wednesday afternoon from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Lounge Bar of Henley Community Centre. Our usual activities are Bingo for approximately 1/2 to 3/4 hour followed by tea/coffee and biscuits. The "men folk" then get involved in dominoes while the ladies hold conversations on various subjects or play board games (scrabble, dominoes or a game of beetle).
From time to time we enjoy entertainment by having slide shows or a choir. We have even been fortunate enough to have a speaker who is involved in the Wimbledon Tournament and ladies showing us the use of the "Spinning Wheel".
During the year we try to organise outings, especially in the summer months. One of the most popular outings is to the Wyevale Garden Centre at Hasketon, near Woodbridge, where everyone enjoys a lunch before browsing around the shop and ending with afternoon tea before heading home.
The year always ends with a superb Christmas Lunch where over the years members of the W.I. have given their services to cook and serve this meal.
We are always looking for new members, so just come along and see what it is like.

We are a registered charity managed by a Committee of volunteer parents elected at each AGM. We currently employ four members of staff, two of whom live in Henley. We also have a small pool of bank staff who we can call on to cover sickness, training days etc. Most of the children registered with us live in Henley, Hemingstone and Gosbeck although, thanks to our excellent reputation, we also attract families from Great Blakenham, Claydon, Ipswich and Needham Market.
We are open (term-time) all day on Mondays and Fridays and mornings only on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Our sessions are 9am to 12 noon and 12 noon to 3pm. On Mondays and Fridays you can choose to extend the morning session to 1pm for an extra £3. Each session is competitively priced at £9 and Government Grant Funding is available to all children aged 3 years upwards. We are currently registered to take children from 2½ years until they reach school age but from November 2010 we hope to be able to take children from 2 years old.
Full details and updates can be found on our website www.henleypreschool.co.uk or you can telephone us on 07979 468467. We welcome and encourage families to visit us during a session so you can meet the staff and see what the children get up to! We look forward to meeting you.
