In April 1964 an appeal was made to raise £30,000 towards the cost of erecting an Old People's Centre in Newbury.
The result of this was Fair Close Day Centre. The Centre was to provide meals, social and recreational activities, etc.
to Older people within the District.  It was opened by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother in November 1967.

Our aim is to provide a friendly environment in which our members feel safe and are encouraged to maintain their independence and wellbeing.
