About Us

Coronation Day Centre is a voluntary run day centre in a purpose built building for the community of Stranraer & District for people aged 60 years and over.


The aim of the Day Centre is to help prevent social isolation by providing a meeting place which offers recreational and other leisure activities. Providing care for individuals giving their family or care providers respite from their normal daily routine. To provide advice, information guidance and practical assistance where needed. Restricted mobility need not be an issue.

Opening Times

This Day Centre is open Monday to Friday 9:30am to 4:00pm, but most people are here between 10:30am and 3:30pm.


How will I get there?

The Day Centre leases a mini bus with a tail-lift from Wigtownshire Community Transport. It is able to pick up anyone who is unable to use public transport or get to the Centre under their own steam.

If you live in one of the outlying areas and need to use the Centre’s mini bus, the bus may only be available to collect you on certain days.

Staff & Volunteers

The Day Centre employs a manager for day to day running, 3 Care Assistants, 1 Travel Assistant, 1 Cook, 1 Deputy Cook, 1 Kitchen Assistant and a Caretaker. 

There are also numerous volunteers who offer their time and abilities.

    Hello, I think you’re doing a great job here on your new web page. It is reflective of the fantastic job that is being done in the Day Centre itself and it is very informative. Now that more and more people have acces to computers, smart phones and tablets it makes sense to have your charity’s information available on-line. Well done to the team.
