The 8,000 square foot building will have room for an array of activities including:
- Dedicated spaces for exercise classes and line dancing

Broomall also will be the headquarters of The Surrey Academy and Skills Lab. The Surrey Academy is a free training and hands-on skills program for two types of caregivers: family caregivers and aspiring professional caregivers. The program, offered by Surrey Services, is made possible thanks to funding from Haverford Township and The Bennett Family.
“Thanks to support from the entire community, Surrey’s vision for a new space with room that better serves our community as a whole has become a reality,” says Jill Whitcomb, President, and CEO. “Surrey inspires, engages, and connects older adults throughout Chester and Delaware county with services, programs, and volunteer opportunities.” “We value the ongoing support we receive from state and local officials, donors, funders, Surrey’s community partners, volunteers, our members.
