CHILL OUT CLUB

The Chill Out Club is a club for adults with a learning disability who have said they want to meet up with their friends in the evening.

The COC continues to be a great place to meet friends. The two groups, A and B, meet on alternate Mondays in a town centre pub. Members spend time chatting to friends, some people dance or play pool. A few people like to order dinner at the pub but most people just have drinks.

The two groups meet up for the Christmas party but otherwise are quite separate. Group A is a slightly older age group and most people there are part of Launch Pad day service. Some members use the Chill Out Club transport to and from their homes.

People in group B are younger and the majority live in supported living settings, some people attend with a support worker and they socialise in small friendship groups. Group B has expanded in the last two years and the waiting list for this group is extensive.

The club is run by Eastleigh Borough and Romsey MENCAP Society staff, and supported by volunteers. Carol-Ann Bond has recently taken over from Maria Dowding as the Club Co-ordinator, and is assisted by Club Helpers Eric Hyom (Group A) and Sarah Holland (Group B).

Please note, access to the room is via stairs - there is no lift available.

Club subs are £2 and you need to bring money to buy drinks.
