Builders have started to lay the foundations of The Adam Centre, in Warrack Terrace, a purpose-built Day Care to replace the present facility in Panmure Place.

The new centre will provide accommodation for the range of services provided by the current Day
Care. It can cater for up to 30 people a day and presently welcomes around 60 regular users every week.

Everyone involved with Day Care is delighted to see the work progressing on the new site.

The Adam Centre will have a special feature in a garden named after a former user, Denis Mellor.

The popular 83-year-old sadly died before being able to complete a charity sky dive to raise funds for the new centre, but Centre manager Irene Mitchell overcame her fear of heights to bravely take the plunge in Denis’ honour and the money raised from the sky dive will be used to create the garden.

The building of the new centre is funded by a very generous legacy from the local Adam family and other fund-raising is ongoing for furnishings and other necessary equipment.
