Day Centre for Senior Citizens
The retired and elderly members of the HCS meet weekly on Thursday 10.30 am to 2.30 pm. There are 80 regular members who attend.
This is a very popular and essential activity of the HCS as it caters for the social needs of the elderly who otherwise may be isolated and lonely.
Refreshments and lunch (funded by the members) is provided on rota basis. In addition to socialising, some members play cards or scrabble, while the physically active play table tennis.
Monthly activities undertaken each week are:
Prayers in the temple
'Mehfil' - An opportunity for members to recite songs, poetry, jokes etc.
Outside guests are also invited regularly to talk on subjects of interest to the elderly, covering health & diet, taxation, first aid, alternative medicine, yoga etc.
Over the last few years, the members (average age 75+) have presented 4 very entertaining cultural and musical programme on the HCS stage for the general membership of the society.
