The Wantage Community Support Service (CSS) is celebrating its 40th anniversary with an inclusive disco.

The disco will take place on December 2, with all those who use the service welcome, including their family and carers.

The adult care facility, originally opened by Princess Diana on December 2, 1983, has provided vital help to more than 200 individuals in the local community over the past four decades.

Councillor Tim Bearder, Oxfordshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care, said: "Wantage community support service has a long and important history, supporting adults from the town and the surrounding areas.

"From its royal opening to its current form, the centre has been a lifeline for people with additional needs, supporting them to live their best life."

Keith Tollett, a regular attendee since the centre's opening, said: "Diana was very pretty and kind and lovely to everyone."

In 1983, then known as Charlton Training Centre, it offered woodwork, carpentry, and gardening activities, and supported adults with learning disabilities.

To raise funds, the centre also sold products made and grown by its users.

As the requirements of social care developed, adaptations were made to the Charlton Training Centre, ultimately leading to the creation of Wantage CSS in 2017.

Now, the centre not only supports individuals within its walls but also encourages visits to outside locations such as museums and local landmarks.
