A poem about Our Centre…

Hidden Treasures


Tucked away behind the shops,

Is Hassocks’ biggest treasure.

Where the ‘Elders’ of the village meet

for company and pleasure.


The atmosphere is warm and kind

A welcome as you enter

From friendly staff and volunteers

Of this unusual Centre.


There’s Hairdressing, Chiropody

The Coffee Shop is tempting.

There’s massage, hearing aids maintained,

And keep fit as you’re sitting.


To stay for lunch is such a treat

Their meals are all delicious.

And those who can no longer cook

Find help like this is precious.


Mah-jong, Canasta, Bingo, Art,

Scrabble, Quiz and Parties.

It all goes on beneath Jill’s wings

Plus winter/summer outings.


And now a shop to benefit

The local population,

Help keep this treasure thriving

For the older generation.


Every village should have one!
