Day Room:

CONSULTATION ON PROVISION OF DAY ROOMS AT 24 The Square, Titchfield, Hampshire, P014 4RU

The Earl of Southampton Trust has been considering how best it can meet one of its charitable objectives, namely the relief of the charitable needs of elderly people in the Ancient Parish of Titchfield which includes Titchfield (parish of St Peter’s), Sarisbury and Whiteley (parish of St Paul’s), Locks Heath (parish of St John’s), Warsash (parish of St Mary’s), Stubbington (parish of Holyrood) and Lee on the Solent (parish of St Faith’s).

Prior to the pandemic, the Trust provided a day centre at 24 The Square, Titchfield, Hampshire, P014 4RU for the elderly people of the Ancient Parish to drop in, have somewhere to chat, with the provision of drinks and hot food. This was a facility that was used by between 3 – 6 daily visitors, mostly local Titchfield residents.

Unfortunately, as a consequence of the covid pandemic, and following government guidelines and a risk assessment, the Trust made the difficult decision to close the day rooms to the public as it simply could not enforce safe social distancing or a suitable cleaning regime.

Although the government has relaxed guidelines on social distancing and mask wearing, the Trust has decided not to reopen the day rooms at the moment.

The closure of the day rooms has given the Trust the opportunity to consider how best it can meet the future needs of people across the Ancient Parish of Titchfield.

We are, therefore, looking to consult residents for their views on what becomes of the Day Rooms.

Please take into account the size of the rooms when making suggestions.

The kitchen measures 13 feet x 5 feet.

The room at the front measures 14 feet x 11 feet.

If you have any comments to make, please write to Tracey Kenney, Clerk to the Trust at 24 The Square, Titchfield, Hampshire, P014 4RU or email her on info@eost.org.uk

The consultation period will run until then end of February 2022.

The Trust will then consider the consultation responses before making a decision on the provision of day-centre services.
