The New Apton Centre is a youth centre for the over 55’s, (that’s how our members describe us) where we provide an opportunity for people to reconnect in an inclusive community and have fun along the way.


We provide day services, packed with choice-based activities, to create and build strong relationships as well as support health and well-being. Food and drink are provided through the day. You can chat over your morning tea and toast, enjoy a home cooked lunch with new and old friends, and finish the day with a nice slice of cake.

If you would like to join us, have a chat, or try a new activity please get in touch.
