Fellowship House Closure (1)

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The Fellowship Management Committee has taken the unanimous decision in view of the Corona Virus outbreak to suspend all activities and close Fellowship House as from next Sunday evening 15th March. The situation will be reviewed in early April. We’re of course very sorry indeed about this but feel that it’s better to act prudently, particularly in view of the fact that Fellowship House is used mainly by the over 60s for non urgent purposes. If this is seen later to have been an overreaction, well, we’ll just have to put up with a bit of egg on our faces. Should you have any questions, please address them to your usual contact at Fellowship House or email hello@fellowshiphouse.co.uk   In the meantime, check this page for further news about the closure.

When this thing has passed, we’ll look forward to opening our doors again and welcoming everyone back, hale and hearty.

Dr David Cohen CBE

It is with great sadness that we record the death of David Cohen on August 4th last. David had a successful career as a doctor and was a philanthropist of international importance specialising in the Arts and Education. He was a great supporter of Fellowship and everything it embodies and all will remember his gentle good humour. We were honoured by his presence on the Management Committee where his  incisive wisdom provided an invaluable guide to our deliberations.

Thanks !
