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.

‘Cramlington Folk Club was established in 1972 and we are one of the longest running folk clubs in the country. We meet every Wednesday, starting at 7.30 pm.
There are guest performers every other week and singers nights in between. It’s quite common to have as many as twelve to fourteen acts on singers nights!
We have always provided a wide variety of music and styles from traditional and contemporary folk to blues and bluegrass. If you are in the area please drop in, you may be pleasantly surprised.
Everyone is welcome, whether to perform or just to enjoy the music and have a drink. Singers wishing to perform should make sure their name is on the list by 8pm at the latest.
We are proud to be known as one of the friendliest clubs in the Country’.

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
