A second site for Day Opps is opening in Bromley!
Due to the success of the Day Opps project we are delighted to advise that we are expanding the service. On the 18th February, Day Opps will open at our new site in Bromley, at the 5th Bromley Scout Group Headquarters on Bromley Common, BR2 9RJ (next door to the Toby Carvery). This is a great venue for us – it’s central and is close to local shops and amenities. It is also close to the Lodge in Norman Park, so the group can visit there for Horticulture.
This is a new purpose built building, with kitchen area, good sized hall, accessible toilet facilities and some outdoor space, as well as a great area for parking and an area for safe drop offs and collections.
From the 25th February, this site will be open every Monday and Friday and whilst we anticipate this being a small group initially, we hope it will grow the same way as the West Wickham site has. The hours will be the same – 10am to 3:30pm and the cost per day the same – £45.
Staff from Day Opps West Wickham will also be working at Day Opps Bromley, so there will be familiar faces in the staff team.
As we will be open on a Monday, we can now offer a five day a week service at Day Opps, so please let us know if you’d like to book in for a Monday at Bromley. If clients specifically want to transfer to Bromley for the Friday session, we are happy to discuss, although we imagine most will want to stay with the group they are familiar with.
If you would like to book in for any additional sessions at either of our sites, please do contact Sam Harris in the first instance at email@example.com.
If you have other queries about this service please contact Caroline Stone at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone on 020 8466 0790.
This is an exciting time for our Day Opps project, and we look forward to being able to support more clients within this service.
