The Deans Senior Tea Club a social club for seniors in East Sussex

We are the Deans Senior Tea Club

Our aim is to combat loneliness in older age whilst having a jolly good time.

We run social clubs for seniors across venues in East Sussex. Our clubs are FREE to attend, so please just turn up or call to enquire.

Sadly the venues we hire are not yet ready to re-open, once they are - we shall risk assess and put in place the necessary procedures and hopefully re open!
