What's on at Fair Close

What’s on

At the Fair Close Centre we pride ourselves on the wide variety of services and activities that are available for our members and visitors. Of course COVID-19 has temporarily reduced the services we are able to provide but the Meals on Wheels service became a vital service throughout lockdown and beyond as did our welfare service, mainly via telephone. We are delighted that our Hair Salon is open for business and appointments are available with the Foot Health practitioners. The Centre is serving lunch from Monday to Friday and roast on Sunday, with the aim of providing a safe environment for older people to venture out to eat. Advance booking is essential – call 07784 819313 to book and scroll down for more details.
