The Executive of Kingston Council this week welcomed the opening of The Noble Centre in Blagdon Road New Malden, a community centre dedicated to Promoting Independent People Services (PIPS) for the Borough's elderly and disabled residents.
Lead Member for Health and Adult Community Services Rolson Davies said: "I am absolutely delighted to note the opening of this new community centre in New Malden. We have upgraded the facilities on the site of the old Hobkirk House Day centre and now offer some of the best services in London for keeping local residents and the wider community active and independent."
The Noble Centre was officially opened earlier in the week on Tuesday 12th January. Conservative members of the Council failed to attend.
Making lives easier
Cllr Davies continued: "I am extremely impressed by the quality of this new community resource.
“Right in the heart of New Malden, elderly and disabled residents as well as their friends and family, can now find an enormous range of useful services in one place aimed at making lives easier. Visitors will be given professional bespoke advice on how to keep active and independent, as well as demonstrations of the latest assistive technology and home adaptations.
"Also included is space for the offices of Kingston Carers' Network who will provide information, advice and support to anyone caring for a relative or friend in the borough. The Bridge Cafe is run by MIND in Kingston for the benefit of local people with mental health issues."
