Eileen Tozer Centre in Addlestone to reopen

The Eileen Tozer Centre

Runnymede Borough Council is pleased to announce it intends to reopen the popular Eileen Tozer Centre in Addlestone to provide daytime activities and services to the area’s older residents.

Councillors approved a plan to reopen the Centre in Station Road following the decision by the Addlestone Community Association that it would not be possible to relocate services to the Addlestone Community Centre.

The decision to reopen the Centre has now created several new job opportunities for local residents. Recruitment to these jobs is an essential step towards being able to safely begin services and activities at the Centre.

Any residents who are interested in rewarding, flexible work that makes a difference to their community should email community.services@runnymede.gov.uk for more information.

Cllr Chris Howorth, Chair of the Council’s Community Services Committee, said:

I am delighted that we are focussing on reopening the Eileen Tozer Centre. For many years this central, accessible, Addlestone location has provided activities and services that many of our residents enjoyed.


It is disappointing that we were unable to realise the partnership opportunity with the Addlestone Community Association, but we remain committed to continuing to work closely with them on other community initiatives and opportunities.


The decision to reopen the centre means we can now focus on recruiting the right staff to ensure we can offer a safe and enjoyable experience for our older residents. Once we have all the employees in place, we will be able to announce an official opening date.

Reopening the centre is an essential step in the Council’s commitment to funding and delivering daytime services in Addlestone, in support of its Health and Wellbeing and Economic Development Strategies.
