Centres for the community

Elmbridge centres for the community are reopen for hairdressing and podiatry appointments

For the wellbeing of our customers, our centres for the community are currently closed for general use.  

However, we remain committed to supporting those who rely on our centres, and are continuing the phased reopening of our services, with chiropody/podiatry services resuming from these dates:

  • Claygate Centre - Tuesdays from 1 September
  • Cobham Centre - Monday to Wednesday from 7 September
  • Hersham Centre - Tuesday to Friday from 1 September
  • Molesey Centre - Tuesdays from 22 September and Wednesdays from 7 October
  • Walton Centre - Thursdays from 10 September
  • Weybridge Centre - Thursdays from 17 September 

Bookings are available 10am to 3pm. 

Our hair salons are also open on the following days:

  • Claygate Centre - Monday to Friday
  • Cobham Centre - Tuesdays
  • Hersham Centre - Monday to Friday
  • Molesey Centre - Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays
  • Walton Centre - Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays
  • Weybridge - Tuesdays and Fridays  

Salons will be open from 10am to 2pm. 

We have put in place a range of processes and procedures to allow for the safe reopening of these services:

  • You will need to book an appointment in advance with your hair stylist/foot practitioner or with the team at the centre. A questionnaire will need to be complete with them as part of the booking process.
  • Clients are asked to arrive promptly and make their way to the designated entrance, if different from the main entrance (signage will direct you to the correct entrance). 
  • You will be asked to stand back from the door to allow the hairdresser/foot practitioner to admit you into the building. Your temperature will also be taken prior to admittance.
  • Stylists and practitioners will be wearing full PPE for the duration of your appointment.
  • Payment must be made in exact cash or cheque, given in a sealed envelope to the hairdresser/foot practitioner upon completion of your appointment.  

All services are by appointment only. To book your appointment, please call the Centre on their usual number, found below. 

If you would like to volunteer to support our meals-on-wheels service please contact us on 01372 474 552 or email commservices@elmbridge.gov.uk.   All meals-on-wheels volunteers must have their own car.

Please note that our meals-on-wheels volunteers only visit homes at agreed times.
