A message from Community Action Northumberland
As you know, village halls are at the heart of our communities in Northumberland. They offer a place for groups to get together, children to play, people to learn new skills, and family and friends to celebrate. Village halls are a focal point for the local community.
But we know they need support to survive. Behind the scenes, it is you as trustees and management committees that keep village halls going – and you need support and training to fulfil your roles.
Northumbrian Evening 2016 – what a great night!
It’s been over three years since we’ve enjoyed a Northumbrian Evening at Breamish Hall. So, it was a pleasure to have Ernie Coe and friends back in Powburn for an evening of Music and Mirth. Oh…and a pie and pea supper! What’s not to like, eh?
Changing Lives appeal
Any useful items are needed, e.g.

Fistula Hospital in Addis Ababa
Regular readers of Cheviot Views newsletter will likely know of the work of Beryl and John Parr who regularly raise funds for the Fistula Hospital in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
They frequently do this by running a charity shop in Wooler, selling almost anything if it is in a good, saleable condition and, where applicable (e.g. electrics), in working condition. Items such as clothes, household goods, bric-a-brac, toys, tools, sports equipment, children’s things and books are always welcome. Small items of furniture can often also be accommodated and sold. Videos can’t be sold but old vinyl records do sell quite well.
Summer School Fete success
To celebrate the opening of Branton Community Primary School in September 2016, the Summer Fete held on Saturday 25 June 2016 was a great success!
Running and counting…what fun!
With fun and free children’s activities, including a treasure hunt, pony rides, football practice, naming a sheep…and more…there were happy, smiling children and adults everywhere. Despite an early threat of rain, the weather held out and the sun also smiled on proceedings.
Christmas Crafts success…and Santa too!
The Christmas Crafts and Santa event that took place in the Breamish Hall on Saturday 28 November 2015 was a great success.
This is an annual event in Powburn and more people than ever attended this year. In fact, it was so successful that £490.00 was raised for good causes.
As usual, there were a number of Christmas crafts stalls and the light lunch of soup and bread roll, with a lovely cup of tea or coffee went down very well.
