Our Services

The New Apton Centre is the home of Age Concern, Bishops Stortford which is open to people over the age of 55.  It is a social centre, which is open five days per week providing the older community with the opportunity to socialise and participate in a range of social activities.

We have had to significantly reduce the numbers of those attending and our activities on offer to ensure we are meeting COVID guidelines and as such we are currently offering the following activities:

 

  • Gentle exercise sessions

  • Art and Craft workshops 

  • Games and quizzes
