The Brooklands Centre

FOOD - FUN - FRIENDS - FOR THE OVER 55s

WHAT GOES ON AT BROOKLANDS

Normally, Brooklands is a hive of activity with something going on virtually every day, as you can see from the lists below.

However, under the current circumstances, we're only providing a limited service. If you'd like more information about which activities are taking place, please contact us.


Our regular groups and services include:


  • Day centre groups that offer food and activities
  • Special interest clubs and learning-based activities
  • Treatments that require an appointment


Transport is available to and from some of our groups and some take a break either in the summer or over the Christmas period.


The Centre is also used by a wide range of local organisations - for example, Brownies, yoga and antenatal classes. 


For further information about what goes on at Brooklands, please contact us.
