"One of the halls was still under threat of closure when our project started but, because of Let’s Get Together, the closure has been deferred"

“We had seven village halls in the local area. One closed and another was under threat of closure, so we applied to People’s Health Trust for funding to help us revive these spaces.

We’re in a sparse, rural area in the west of Northumberland and there’s not a good public transport network, so isolation is a real issue.

“A major problem was that the committees didn’t know what to do with their village hall. Now we’re working together on programmes of activities and the first one has been really well received.” - John

First of all, we formed a planning group with people from each hall and together decided on activities we’d like to put on to attract local people to start using the village halls.

One of the halls was still under threat of closure when our project started but, because of Let’s Get Together, the closure has been deferred, which is really something to celebrate.”

John McGough, Director and resident
