Fun, food and friendship for older people in West Berkshire

 

 

 

The Fair Close Centre is once again closed for the duration of the lockdown. Of course we continue to deliver hot, nutritious and freshly cooked meals on wheels to older and vulnerable people in their homes across West Berkshire six days a week and to provide welfare services for our members. Please call 01635 40488 to book meals on wheels. 

 

LUNCHES

The Fair Close restaurant is closed due to the lockdown but we look forward to being able to serve freshly cooked lunches at the Centre six days a week (Sunday to Friday) as soon as we can. Advance booking essential – call 07784 819313 to book.

ACTIVITIES

Social distancing rules prevent us from welcoming our members to the Centre for our lively programme of events and activities – we hope to welcome everyone back soon!

TRANSPORT

Temporarily not available. The Fair Close minibus collects people from their homes in the morning and takes them home in the afternoon.

MEALS ON WHEELS

Why not have freshly cooked hot meals delivered to your home daily or a few times a week? Our Meals on Wheels service is available to older people across West Berks six days a week (Sunday to Friday) with the option of a frozen meal delivered on Friday for Saturday.

Donations

The Fair Close Centre receives no public funding. We are dependent on our own efforts to fundraise. Please donate to help us enrich the lives of older people in West Berks.

Become a volunteer

Are you looking to help your community? Why not join us as a volunteer? We are always looking for help and for drivers to deliver our meals on wheels.

Membership

We offer membership for regular users of the Centre which means savings on the cost of lunches.

Opened by the Queen Mother in November 1967, the Fair Close Centre is an important community facility for the town and also for many Sovereign residents and we support this exciting initiative.
