The Fairfield Centre has been open for 32 years; its aim is to provide a friendly meeting place for the over 60s but anyone can join the Centre if they would like to take part in our activities or use our services.
We offer many classes, delicious 'home cooked' lunches, a choice of snacks and drinks, and a warm, light place to meet friends old and new.
Several changes have taken place over the past few months so that we can incorporate a Wellbeing Centre, a place for various agencies to attend to give advice about dementia, and other matters relating to older people.
If you have never visited the Centre, or have not come along for a while, then why not pop in and use the voucher opposite for an all day drinks voucher, and the opportunity to learn about all our activities, outings and events.

A new Wellbeing Centre providing support and advice for the elderly is open at the Fairfield Centre in Leatherhead. An open day for people to find out more will be held on 1st May.
The Wellbeing Centre will be used as a central focus point of information and advice particularly for people in the early stages of dementia or prior to diagnosis. Carers will also benefit from the easily accessible information and services. It is estimated that around 570,000 people in the UK have dementia, a disease that causes memory loss, difficulty with everyday tasks and the loss of speech and mobility.
Surrey County Council has set up partnerships with local organisations including the Alzheimer's Society, Age UK and the NHS to provide a weekly timetable of sessions which will promote well-being and independent living.
The centre is open to anyone, whatever your situation and whether you are concerned about yourself or someone else.
A drop in advice service is available every Tuesday between 1.30 pm and 3.30 pm.
