Fair Close Café for Over 60s

Newtown Road, Newbury RG14 7BH

The Fair Close Centre was opened by the Queen Mother in November 1967 and we have since celebrated 55 years of continuous service to over 65s in West Berkshire and North Hampshire. Our aim has always been to enrich the lives of older people by providing a place to go to spend time with friends and to meet new people.

The Fair Close Centre is managed by a warm team of staff and volunteers who fulfil a variety of roles from delivering meals on wheels to serving in the restaurant. The Fair Close Centre offers fun, food and friendship to ensure that our members feel involved and connected in a caring community.

As well as providing companionship and hot meals, the Fair Close Centre also provides a welfare service, hairdressing and a range of activities.


'I have found the centre to be a wonderful way for people to feel part of the community. The hot meal service ensures people continue to have a good well-balanced diet Monday to Friday. I know the knit and natter is popular and has a real community feel." Anne Record, WBC.

"Fabulous place, they look after my mum so well, always making her welcome. Lots of fun activities too." Haeley Reeves.
