    During Corona Virus, the centre has been closed. The centre re-opened for lunches on 5th October, but sadly had to close again due to the lockdown.The centre is a Covid safe centre and all necessary steps have been taken to ensure everyone remains safe whilst enjoying their lunch.

    Check back regularly to see news on when we can safely re open again.

    Usually there are activities every day ranging from art and craft classes to chair based exercise.

    You can get a freshly cooked 2 course meal Monday-Friday.
