Corona Virus Closure

We are very sorry to inform the community that The Alice Cross will be closing to the general public at end of business on Thursday 19th March as a result of the pandemic and government advice

There will be an emergency Trustees meeting at 4pm on 19th March followed by an Open meeting for community groups at 6pm at The Alice Cross Centre to decide a strategy for the best way forward in supporting any isolated and lonely people in our community in the coming months

We are working with the Town Council and other groups to try to organise a community response to this situation , which we hope to include,

• A telephone befriending service
• Shopping for isolated older people
• Possible provision of meals to the home

We will keep you posted as updates arise

If you would like to volunteer or know of anyone who would benefit from the services, please get in touch on 01626 778039 or

We would also appreciate it if you would “like” our facebook page and share our posts during this period of closure.  We would like the page to become more of a community noticeboard and in order to do this it requires people to share all the information and posts we put up.  Please encourage your friends and family to also follow the page and website for updates and information.  Many thanks!
