Regular Events at Peterhouse (see below for timetable)

As well as being available to rent on an ad-hoc basis for meetings, contact, counselling or parties, Peterhouse is home to several long-term activities, run by our users.

The CREST Club operates at Peterhouse on Tuesdays and Thursdays.It is a full day service starting with collection by escorted transport around 10.00 am and dropping off at home around 5.00 pm .

CREST Club provides a weekly opportunity to socialise, to learn new skills, to become more active and to live healthier, more independent lives. But overall, this is a service that is full of fun and laughter and that makes a very real and positive difference to people’s lives in a safe and secure environment. A freshly cooked lunch is made on-site every day.Most afternoons a guest speaker attends bringing older people and volunteers together for an afternoon of stories, information, music and singing, laughter and lively conversation.The all-inclusive charge for this is £60, but first of all potential customers are invited to attend a free taster day to see if it’s the sort of thing they're looking for.
