Following two years of restrictions, we are extremely pleased to say that we are returning to face to face meetings at the Deerfold Centre, 233 Seaside, Eastbourne BN22 7NR. For new members, you will find directions to the address on our website


As a safety precaution, everything will be sanitised. All those entering the building will need to use the antibacterial hand gel at the entrance. There will be a separate ‘in and out’ access. If you would like to wear a face mask, please do so but it will not be compulsory as we know some members struggle with breathing through a mask. We are very conscious of the need to continue to be vigilant and to protect all volunteers and members. You will need to bring your own cup or mug for refreshments.


The meetings will be very informal and we look forward to welcoming old and new members. It is very exciting that we will finally be able to meet members face to face after such a long time.






We are living through some very challenging times at the moment and if any of our members find themselves not being able to get to the shops for essential supplies then please contact us either through the 'Contact Us' page or leave a message on the 'Forum' page. You can also call our support line. We will do what we can to assist.

                                               Please do not suffer in silence, we are here to support you. 

                                  Coronavirus Vaccine Scams Warning

Cyber criminals are using the roll out of the NHS Covid-19 vaccine to target victims with convincing looking text messages.

  • The texts appear to be from the NHS and state the recipient has the opportunity to sign up for the vaccine.

  • The texts ask the recipient to click on a link which takes them to an online form where they are prompted to input personal and financial details.

  • In some cases the online form has looked very similar to the real NHS website.

  • Remember, the NHS will NEVER ask for your payment details.

If you have received one of these scam text messages:

  • Do not respond or click on the link

  • You can report spam texts directly to your mobile phone provider. All operators now use 7726 – with the exception of Vodafone who uses 87726 – as the short code to report spam texts which is free of charge. It’s easy to remember as the number spells out SPAM on a mobile phone keypad. Once reported you should get an automated response thanking you for the report and giving you further instructions.

  • If you have clicked and supplied your details, report it immediately to Action Fraud
