MOORLANDS day centre is looking for volunteers.

The centre, which is based at the new Moorlands Residential Home at The Moor, Melbourn, is looking for people to come and spend a few hours with those who attend.

Helen Ashworth, team leader at the day centre, said: "We'd like to hear from people who could give a talk on a hobby or passion of theirs, or who would just like to come in for a chat and a cup of tea."

The group are now settled in their new premises, and would also welcome new members.

"It's a chance for elderly people from Melbourn and the surrounding villages to socialise and get out and about," said Helen.

"We collect people from their homes then take them back afterwards. It's great to be back at Moorlands, the new buildings are lovely."

The day centre runs from 10am-3pm, Tuesday to Friday.

Anyone who is interested in volunteering should call 01763 260564.
