Welcome to Bournemouth Gateway Club

Attending Bournemouth Gateway Club from April 2022

Thanks to the National Lottery Community Fund we have been able to run Gateway Club without charging members until end of March 2022.

This funding is now coming to an end. From April 2022 we will be charging to come to Club on Thursdays and Fridays. Saturday Club will continue to be free for members

Emergency Contact Details

Everyone will need to fill in a new digital emergency contact form. You can download a form here. Please let us have your email if you would like us to send a form or we can help you fill one out at club. If you need a paper version, please ask.  

Newsletter Contact List

We will be adding everyone to our email newsletter list so we can quickly and easily get in touch if there are any problems or if we have to shut. You can of course opt out of email contact but you may not be notified if we have to close suddenly.

Personal Care and Extra Support

Please note we do not offer any one-to-one or personal support. If you need extra support please bring a carer with you. Carers come in for free.

Thursday and Friday Club From April 2022

Entrance Price

We have decided to subsidise entrance fees. This means we will be charging less to come to Club than it costs to run. We can do this because we have some money in savings. From April 2022 it will only cost £10 per day to come to club.

All activities and drinks are included in the daily fee for members and any carers. If we have something that will cost extra, such as a trip or a party, we will let you know in advance.

Please bring a packed lunch.

New hours

From April 2022 club will be open from 10.30 am to 2.00 pm. This gives us extra time to do another activity after lunch.

The day will look something like this;

10.30 – 11.00 am         Arrive, settle in, have a drink
11.00 – 12.00 noon      Activity
(currently Zumba on Thursdays and singing/music on a Friday)
12.00 – 12.30 pm         Lunch break
12.30 – 1.30 pm           Activity
(Phil will be back running newsgroup on Friday afternoons)
1.30 – 2.00 pm             Prepare to leave

Booking In Advance

We still need to make sure that we have enough staff here and are not too crowded so if you want to come you must book a regular place. If you book a regular place and do not come, then you will still have to pay for the place. You can now attend either one or two days (or three is you come Saturdays too) if we have places available.

Saturday Club from April 2022

Saturday Club will carrying on running every other Saturday evening from 6 – 8 pm.

We have decided that we will use Club funds to carry on running Saturday club free to members.

We will continue to offer suppers for £1.00 each.

Social Evenings

We will try to run regular social events throughout the year as we know people love to go out and do things with friends. We will keep costs as low as possible but we need to cover staffing costs. At times we may charge a bit more for events than it would cost to go on your own because of this. Social events are optional.

If you have any questions or comments please speak to Anna or email bournemouthgateway@hotmail.co.uk
