A warm welcome round The Hearth

I spent an hour last week meeting Pam and James, two of the Trustees of The Hearth in Horsley, and looking around the facilities. 

The Hearth is a popular community hub for Arts, Music and Heritage, with a first class cafe serving home baked cakes, light lunches, Sunday roast and a fantastic all day breakfast. The Hearth is also home to ten resident artists, who welcome visitors to their studios and who offer work for sale, as well as regular workshops and classes on a range of skills - why not try ‘Daft as a Duck’ on Sunday 1st October?

If History is your thing, forthcoming talks include ‘The 1917 Russian Revolution and Tyneside’ and ‘Hadrian’s Roman Cavalry’ on 28th September and 26th October respectively - tickets £5 and available on the door. 

Facilities like The Hearth don’t run on their own, and it is down to the hard work of Trustees and Volunteers that this centre continues to thrive. They are currently looking for a Treasurer Trustee - if you feel that you may be able to help and would like to be involved in ensuring The Hearth survives into the future, why not get in touch.
