My dear Mum is 70+ and getting a little lonely as she lives alone (Nevill area). I try to visit as much as possible but it's not always easy. Anyway, are there any clubs (daytime would be best) for the more senior of citizens? She likes dancing and crafts?

Have you tried that place opposite River Lodge the Doctors Surgery, I think its like a day/community centre for the elderly?
It's in the Town though and not to close to the Nevill area if thats not a problem..

Have you tried the House of Friendship on School Hill. They have lots of different classes, lunches at a very cheap price etc. Next to the Flint Owl Bakery.

There's the Riverside Club at St Thomas Church Hall in the Cliffe; the House of Friendship on School Hill; or, if she likes singing, the Golden Age Singers on Tuesday afternoons at the Friends' Meeting House. More detail available if you're interested.

thank you for your replies. I'll take a look at your suggestions.
I was hoping something might take place at st mary's hall on the nevill as it would be easy for her to get there.

Here's the link to st Mary's. Looks like they have regular bingo and cribbage.

You might also check the All Saints centre for dancing and crafts, the town council website for community groups, the back pages of Lewes news which has details of lots of clubs and also talk to Age concern/ Age UK about services/activities they provide in the area. House if Friendship on school hill is bound to know of any dance classes. There's also a walking group at the leisure centre specifically for the older person who may be a bit slower or more infirm.
Hope that helps and you find something for her!

There's also quite an active University of the Third Age which has interesting looking talks about all kinds of things. Also worth a look if she would like to keep her brain ticking over is the WEA courses in the town - I did a terrific philosophy course there last year. Not expensive, and a lot of the attendees are retired but mentally very active.

The house of friendship in school hill is a lot cheaper than the phoenix and the staff are really caring. You can also buy a very nice meal.
