Age UK invites over-55s to discover what’s on offer at local activity centre


Age UK is keen to raise awareness of its activity centre in Wanstead (also known as the Allan Burgess Centre).

“The centre has struggled to replenish visitor numbers since reopening after COVID. We run daily exercise, games and craft classes, and our fabulous new chefs, Teresa and Julie, prepare freshly cooked meals Monday to Friday,” said centre manager Jackie Balman. Located at 2 Grove Park (opposite the Co-op), the centre’s two-course lunches (£7) are available to any Redbridge resident aged 55 and over.
