We are 10! Tenth Birthday for COC - 19 June 2017
It is hard to believe but it was ten years ago this year that the Chill Out Club was started. To mark the occasion we will be having a skittles night for Club members in Eastleigh on June 19.
We will share a fish & chip supper and Birthday cake of course!Club members will receive more information about the event at their club night.
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. We are currently seeking a replacement for the Club Co-ordinator (more details...).
The Club Co-ordinator is supported by two
Club Helpers, Maria Dowding and Eric Hyom.
Please note, access to the room is via stairs - there is no lift available.
Club subs are £2.50 and you need to bring money to buy drinks.
