Age UK Croydon

A Brief History

A small steering group of interested people from the Croydon community started working together to create an information and advice service for older people in Croydon, and in November 1995 opened an office in London Road as Croydon Council on Ageing. This location gave easy access to those living in the densely populated North of the Borough in particular.

The organisation started with two full time staff, part time administration support and two volunteers, and progressed to opening three days a week meeting clients and taking telephone enquiries as a strong volunteer workforce was rapidly built up.

Later renamed Age Concern Croydon, we continued to grow dramatically. In November 2009 a second office was opended in Katharine Street, central Croydon (opposite the Town Hall and Clocktower), and in July 2010 we became Age UK Croydon, in partnership with the national Age UK charity.

Latest updates

Just been posting some music in the music page. Welcome to have a listen

I have discovered ‘Exercise’! There is no mention in any of the Lifestyle headings about ‘Exercise’. This should be part of 50plusonlinecafe topics. So important!

Live Music

Now that we can get back to enjoying live music, is there anyone you really want to see or already have tickets to see this year? I will be seeing Eagles at Hyde Park at the end of June. One of my favourite bands that I have never seen before and am very much looking forward to seeing play live.

How was your weekend?

I was saving cats on Saturday helping out at our local Cats Protection bazaar. Then on Sunday I was painting all of the wood in sight with wood stain/preserver – table & chairs, bench, door frames. Only gets done once every couple of years but a good job to get out of the way!

Does anyone have any super recipes to share?
