Older People's Project
This project supports older people in Haltwhistle and the surrounding area to socialise and have lunch together once a month. Meals are cooked by a team of volunteers and there are special lunches both before Christmas and on Christmas day. There is also a drop in session. In addition trips are also organised such as to pantomimes, day visits or the annual holiday to Scarborough.
The partnership have recently completed refurbishment of the 4 flats above the Centre of Britain Army Surplus Store in the Market Place. There remains a maisonette still to be refuribshed, for which we are actively seeking funding.
Behind the Partnership Office at Westbourne House is our community garden. Each Wednesday a group of volunteers meet to work in and enjoy the garden. Through this project the Partnership also supports events held by South Tyne Sustainability.
