Christmas Lunches

A local craft group were the first to try our Christmas dinner offering from Cafe @ Burn this week. The private lunch was served in the resource room, next to the cafe, which was decorated with fresh holly and ivy. The group enjoyed roast turkey with all the trimmings, followed by a dessert of Christmas pudding or cheesecake and coffee. The group thanked the chef for a fantastic meal and said they hoped to be back next year.

Annual General Meeting 2018

,

Thanks go to everyone who came along to out AGM this year, to hear from Chair, Pat Maginn and Director, Liz Prudhoe about the work undertaken over the year 2017/18. This informal event was a chance for members and partner organisations to get together and look back at what has been achieved and what is planned for the coming year. The new Personal Assistant Register was launched at the meeting – this is a register held by Adapt (NE), of people looking to work as a personal assistant or carer, so that those looking for help can find someone suitable in their local area. For more information please give us a call.

The AGM coincided with our first Community Information Morning, held in the resource centre, next to Cafe @ Burn Lane. Local organisations including Alzheimers Society, West Northumberland Food Bank and Carers Northumberland were on hand with advice and information for the general public and our AGM guests. We plan to hold these Information Mornings quarterly so look out for details of the next one in the new year.
