The New Street Centre has been at the heart of the community for nearly 50 years. It provides a space for activities and groups that promote health and wellbeing for Daventry’s elderly residents.

The Centre hosts the New Street Cafe every weekday morning, from 9.30am-12pm. The Cafe also runs two community lunches from 12.30pm on the first and third Thursday of the month. Please call us if you would like to book a place – 01327 300614.

The day-to-day running of the Centre is managed by Daventry Volunteers and is governed by a board of trustees which is made up of members of groups who use the facilities.

Although the Centre is used every day there are sometimes a few slots available for hire for groups. If you are interested please contact us on 01327 300614.

The Centre is in use by a range of groups every day, most of which welcome new members. Please find below the weekly activities and groups that run from the Centre.
