We offer a safe, welcoming girl-only space for girls and young women to try new things, help other people and discover their passions and talents. All while having fun with a ready-made group of friends!
We’re dedicated to girls leading the way – they choose the activities, challenges and events that inspire them, and our volunteers support them to make it happen. Because girls shape and lead everything we do, we know that we’re offering the best opportunities and experiences for girls today.
Normally we meet Tuesday 7-8.30 pm term time only but because of COVID-19 we are unable to meet face-to-face so are having weekly whats app and zoom meetings. We have outdoor meetings in the early evening and at weekend.
Meetings suspended due to COVID-19
Healthwise is a women’s group whose aim is to promote health and wellbeing.
They meet weekly and enjoy a varied programme of speakers, quizzes and entertainment.
They also aim to inform members about organisations relating to health and social issues.
This is done with friendly chats over a cuppa in a warm and welcoming environment.
Normally they meet between 10-12 on a Thursday but because of COVID-19 these meetings have been suspended.
The friendship of the group is still being maintained as members have telephoned each other, received postcards and committee members have also made welfare calls.
The committee have held a social-distanced meeting to plan for when they can resume meetings and how to offer support. We will update this post once there is news about meetings resuming.
SUSPENDED DUE TO COVID-19

The club has decided to maintain its current stance of no club activity at this time however they are hopeful of being able to restart some activity in September.
We will update this post when new information is made available.
On 19th June, the RFL published its Rugby League Return to Play Plan for the Community Game, building on the latest advice from Government (DCMS) and Sport England.
Having reviewed the information, the club has decided to maintain its current stance of no club activity at this time. Our training venue remains closed and we are not comfortable we can provide a training area with sufficient health and safety requirements.
What is in the RFL guidance?
In the published document, the RFL sets out what activity is allowed aligned with the government’s 5-step alert level.
The alert level recently dropped from level 4 to level 3, meaning the virus is in general circulation and there is a gradual relaxation of restrictions.
This aligns to the RFL Return To Play Stage 2 where only small group based activity with social distancing measures in place is allowed. This is where we are now.
What is the Next Stage?
When the Government Alert system moves from Level 3 to Level 2, this will align with the RFL Return to Play Stage 3.
Stage 3 allows social rugby league with social distancing criteria reduced. This would take the form of tag or touch rugby, progressing over time to X-League style semi-contact, albeit with rule adaptions to reduce the risk.
At Stage 3, full contact is still restricted with no leagues or competitions activity allowed.
When will we return?
When the RFL guidance moves to Stage 3, the club will consider returning to some form of activity, subject to a review of the risks, venue availability and the prevailing government advice.
Until then, no official activity is permitted by any members of the club, regardless of efforts to following the available guidance.
When will it go back to normal?
We will return to ‘normal’ (contact rugby and competitive activity) when the RFL Return to Play reaches Stage 4. This aligns with the government alert system moving from Level 2 (Number of cases and transmission is low) to Level 1 (COVID-19 is no longer present in the UK).
Any returns will be phased and following RFL guidance. We cannot say when that will be but as we have said before, we do not intend to be leaders in returning to activity, instead observing and understanding what other sports and clubs encounter in terms of processes and challenges. The safety of all our members remains of the utmost priority.
If you have any questions, please get in touch via your Team Manager or social media.

Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm
We would usually hold our carers support groups face to face within the community but due to COVID 19 this was not safe, so instead we have been holding all our carers support groups via Zoom and teleconference calls. We also contacted many of our most isolated carers via telephone to see how they were. Due to the success and uptake of our Zoom carers groups we have now started to provide carers workshops via Zoom. We also increased the frequency of our carers newsletter to keep all our carers up to date with ever changing guidance.
Details about all our carers groups and workshops can be found on our newsletter and on our Facebook page. Carers can register themselves on our website, via telephone or professional referrals can be made on their behalf to Carers Northumberland
