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.

Property Refurbishment

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.

Community Garden

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.

Zig Zag Project

Targeting people who feel isolated due to disability, unemployment, mental health or other issues, ‘Zigzag Days’ is being coordinated by Haltwhistle Partnership and will put on minibus trips to visit beauty spots and nature reserves, sites of cultural or historical significance, and other places of interest in the Northumberland National Park and North Peninnes AONB. The day out will include a visit to nearby cafe/tea room for refreshments.

Zigzag Days is free of charge to participants unless there is an admission fee to the site being visited. Individuals will pay for their own refreshments purchased during the day.
