Welcome to Age Concern, Heathfield and District. We are a local, independent, registered charity (Charity Commission Number 205665).

Growing older can be a frightening and lonely experience for some people. Age Concern aims to encourage social interaction, happiness and confidence to embrace life in later years and above all else to promote independence and well being.

We are run totally by volunteers, so we are always looking for new recruits – if you would be interested in joining our friendly team, or would like further information on ways in which you could help us, please give us a ring:

The Men’s Shed

Since our last report, HMS has continued to go from strength to strength. As we start 2020, we can reflect on our achievements for 2019 – we have a strong membership with 15 of those members regularly turning up to every meeting.  We have progressed from holding meetings at the Heathfield Fire Station, to holding  meetings in our own, newly constructed office/clean shed building, and have recently received the exciting news that, under the rules of permitted development, we have permission to proceed with the construction of our larger workshop building which we hope to begin in March of this year

Shedders’ creations available at Gemini Cards

We are delighted that Gemini Cards, on Heathfield High Street, have kindly offered space in their front window to display a
small selection of locally turned wooden items. Gemini Cards are strong supporters of local community activities and we are delighted and encouraged by their support.

We hope you will pay Gemini Cards a visit, browse the collection of hand crafted wooden items – and buy one!  Proceeds go to Heathfield Men’s Shed.
