The Centre was purpose built and founded by Coulsdon residents in 1984 for the benefit of retired people. We are an independent Company and a registered Charity. Open every weekday except for Bank holidays and the Christmas period, from 10.00am to 4.00pm.

A great place in a lovely environment to drop in for a tea/coffee and read the paper or for a get together with a friend. No appointment needed just treat it as a café and all you need to be is retired.

Yes – if you wish there is more from which you may benefit. Nutritional lunches or snacks, keep fit, bingo, entertainment, outings locally or to the coast. Also special celebration lunches for special occasions such as St George’s Day, Valentine’s Day and Christmas together with monthly fish and chips. The Centre also provides a hub for Hearing Surgeries, Nail Cutting and Police Safer Neighbourhood Team meetings. You are spoilt for choice and the choice is yours. If you have limited mobility, we have a mini-bus that can collect you in the morning and return you home in the afternoon.

Why don’t you drop in and see what you think?
There is no obligation but if you would like re-assurance or more information please call
