New Chairman for Thame Day Centre


Trustees of Thame and District Day Centre have appointed a new chairman, following the retirement of Mrs Brenda Prosser, who was one of its founding organisers 25 years ago.

The Centre has met at Thame Community Hospital throughout that time.Trustees at their August meeting paid tribute to the devoted service of Mrs Prosser since 1986.

And they welcomed her successor, Thame resident Tyrell Gillman.

Mr Gillman takes on the new appointment, with a great deal experience of Thame and its people, as he is a member of Thame Rotary Club and, as its Community and Vocational Chairman, has had much experience of working with and for the town’s senior citizens, especially Christmas celebrations.

The centre has a manager, Gill Coleman and a deputy.Stephanie Johnson, who are assisted by a loyal band of volunteers, some who help at the Centre and others who act as drivers, providing the members with transport to and from the Centre, which meets on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
