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.

Cramlington Doorstep Walks is a series of way marked short walks in and around the town, suitable for people of all ages and abilities, which are easily accessible ‘from your doorstep’.
The town already has a comprehensive and well established cycling and walking network and the project will help to redefine the routes for local people, while identifying opportunities for further development.
Doorstep walks have been developed in South East, West and North Cramlington, each signposted with colourful new waymarkers stating direction, distances and estimated completion time to walk the coloured route. Information stands have been erected on each walk to explain the various routes and a new glossy leaflet has been created which will be posted to every household in Cramlington throughout July.
The walks vary in length, most being between 1.5 to 3 miles in distance, which could take between 30 minutes to an hour to walk.
