We are a community centre and café located in Banbury town centre. We help older people stay active in their communities by providing a range of services and activities.

WRVS is an age positive national charity founded 75 years ago.

We believe that every older person should have the opportunity and choice to get more out of life. Everyday WRVS helps thousands of older people to live the way they want. We provide personal and practical support so older people can stay independent at home and active in their local community.

Weekly activities include:

  • Dancing
  • Hairdressing
  • Keep Fit
  • Tai Chi
  • Art Class

We also offer podiatry and complimentary therapy sessions. Contact us for our full programme of events.

Our volunteers provide practical support in the home to help older people stay independent. We can also provide transport. This service currently covers Banbury and the surrounding villages. 

The Cornhill Café is open Monday-Saturday from 10am-2pm, serving freshly prepared lunches and snacks at reasonable prices. We also offer a range of hot and cold drinks and freshly ground Fairtrade coffees to drink in or takeaway.
