About Extra Time Hubs
Crawley Town Community Foundation are one of 11 Clubs in the country selected to deliver the Extra Time Hubs. Working in partnership with the EFL Trust funded by the National Lottery and Sport England, our aim is support people over the age of 55 to increase their activity levels, reduce social isolation and levels of loneliness.
We welcome members of the community who may already be active, as it is important to stay active and as you may be able to support those who are less active.
Our weekly sessions are aimed at engaging everyone over the age of 55 through physical and social activities. We have included activities including quizzes, seated pilates, table tennis, walking football,
board games and regular health checks.
Refreshments such as tea, coffee and biscuits are always available, along with welcoming staff ready to support everyone who attends our Extra Time Hub. The cost is £3 per week.
