A community space and cafe for over 50s

What does it do?

The Hop 50+ is a community space and café which offers a range of activities and social opportunities for people aged 50+. We are here to support customers to improve their health and wellbeing, to learn new skills and to be a place where people can enjoy good food and company. We offer a range of activities that include day trips out, exercise groups, tech help, quizzes and art groups.

We serve a homecooked main meal between 12.30 and 1.30pm. Our snack menu is available throughout the day.

The café is open on Wednesday mornings 9.30-12.00 am for the Pit Stop - a drop in for people living with the early stages of dementia and carers only in a comfortable and friendly informal café space. This provides an opportunity to meet others for whom dementia is an everyday reality.

We run the Hop Stop on a Friday which is dedicated to providing a specialist dementia friendly service.  This is a pre-book session only.  Please contact us to find out more about the service.
