The new-look COATS Centre is now open for business following our Building a Better COATS refurbishment programme.

Don’t be shy just turn up at our main door on Pinewood Avenue.

Tuesday 10 December 14:00 to 16:00

Saturday 14 December 10:00 to 16:00

We will be more than happy to show you round.

COATS has been in operation for over 50 years. Our main aim is to provide companionship, healthy lunches and stimulating activities for older people in our community. If you would like to meet some new people in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, please come and visit us. You’ll be able to meet our visitors, have a 2 course lunch for a reasonable price and spend the afternoon in the company of others. We often have outside entertainers who bring song, dance and other activities into our well appointed Centre.If you are the carer of an older person and need a chance to have some time for yourself during the week, please come and meet our Centre Manager and staff who will be able to show you around and explain our activities. You’ll be able to decide whether the Centre is right for your family member.


If you would like to help us out, there are a number of ways to do this. You could volunteer in the Centre, assist in our Charity Shop, become a minibus driver, join us at our fundraising events, give your time in other ways or perhaps just donate. Learn More
