Allens Croft Twilight Support at the the Hub has always recognised that is is important to combine community development with a regular programme of informal and fun activities which bring older residents into contact with each other. Our diverse programme of social and Leisure activities has continued to help older people to overcome feelings of isolation and vulnerability with some older people becoming the key organisers and making the activities run well.

You are welcome to turn up to join in any of our activities at The Hub on the day.
