Fair Close Centre

A friendly place for the senior citizens of West Berkshire to meet, eat and relax.



Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the Fair Close Centre has closed but we are working in partnership with Newbury Racecourse, Greenham Trust, Stream Networks and Swift Logistics to provide hotnutritious meals on wheels to all those who need it as well as a telephone befriending service to keep in touch with our members. A two-course hot meal costs £5.50 (£5 for members) or £5 (£4 for members) for a main course only. Lunches are available seven days a week including a Sunday Roast every week and can be ordered by telephoning 01635 40488 between 10am and 2pm Monday to Friday (answerphone in operation outside these hours) or by emailing hello@fairclosecentre.org if you need a more immediate response.

We serve tasty and nutritious freshly cooked meals every weekday in our dining room.


A lively programme of events and activities ensures that senior citizens remain active and entertained.


Our centre’s minibus is available to collect people from their homes in the morning and return them in the afternoon.


Why not have fresh meals delivered daily? Our meals on wheels service is available to housebound senior citizens.

Get involved with us


The Fair Close Centre receives no public funding. We have to raise approximately £20,000 a year through a variety of fundraising events.

Become a volunteer

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


We offer membership for regular users of the centre which means savings on the cost of meals and in our hairdressing salon.

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.
