The Point is a centre whose primary aim is to support, develop the Voluntary, Community and Faith sector.
The Fairfield Centre
The Fairfield Social Centre is a meeting place for older people to socialise and take part in activities for pleasure, leisure, to keep fit and to learn. It is open 10am to 4pm, Monday to Friday. Although traditionally the services and activities have been for over 60s, younger people are welcome to come along.
To contact the centre, please call 01372 376058, email firstname.lastname@example.org, SMS text 07771 576411 or visit the centre in Leret Way, Leatherhead, KT22 8AH.
We have a whole range of activities to suit many interests, including:
- Music and Movement
- Tai Chi
- Yoga - chair or mat
- Line Dancing
- Ballroom Dancing
- Physio Fit
- Art Group
- Conquest Art
- Computer classes
We also offer services including beauticians & massage, hairdressing and chiropody.
We offer a 'home cooked' two course lunch everyday between 12pm and 1pm in our dining room. We also offer:
- A range of snacks and drinks in our Cafe from 10am to 3pm. Booking is not required.
- A monthly Special Event, for example, Valentines Day, Easter or Summer Solstice. Booking is necessary for this three course meal and coffee, which is followed by entertainment.
On Mondays and Fridays from 10am to 3.30pm there is a carer at the Centre to give extra support to those that need it. It does not include personal care, but a helping hand and someone to chat to, play games and to help people to feel more at home. People need to be reasonably active to come along, although anyone with care needs is welcome to bring along their carer.
Membership for the Fairfield Centre runs to 31 March each year and the individual annual fee is £12. A joint membership (available to husband and wife) costs £17 per year. A reduced rate of £6.50 applies to those in receipt of Pension Credit.
For your first visit to the centre you do not need to be a member. Come along and see what you think.
For those needing transport to attend the centre, please see MVDC's 'Dial-a-Ride' service (see 'Related Pages').
The Fairfield Centre also houses Mole Valley Wellbeing Centre, an information and advice hub for older residents with memory loss, and their carers. (See 'Related Pages')
Dorking Christian Centre
The Dorking Christian Centre (DCC) is a church owned community centre. Previous Mayflower Centre members can attend for cooked lunches, hairdressers, chiropody and activities such as whist.
The popular Mayflower bingo club continues and the DCC hosts a bridge club every Thursday afternoon which is always open to new members. The DCC brings together customers of both the Christian Centre Cafe and the Mayflower Centre to offer new facilities and an improved menu from 10am to 1.45pm.
