New Committee for 2017/18

The Consortium’s AGM took place on Thursday 9th November 2017 at Riding Mill Parish Hall, beginning at 7.00pm. It was an important meeting in which we said a sad goodbye to three stalwarts of the Consortium.  Happily, we have managed to attract four new members onto the committee, as well as forging our new alliance with CAN. Read more about your new Committee here

The current design of this website needs to be updated to reflect the increasing use of mobile and tablet devices. We are currently working on this but would love to have more images to add to the visual appeal.  Therefore, it would be great if our members could let us have pictures of halls, community buildings, landscapes, activities or people (pictures of the committees, perhaps?), which we could use.  All pictures will be welcomed, in any suitable digital format but preferably in high resolution, and should be sent via email to: editor@westnorthumberlandcbc.org.uk


West Northumberland Community Buildings Consortium (WNCBC) is registered with the Charity Commission – registration number 1168006.  You can view our information on the Charity Commission website here.

WNCBC is an organisation which was set up to represent all village halls and community buildings of any type within the West Northumberland area. It is run by a management committee which is made up of volunteers from within its own members halls, and is further supported by Community Action Northumberland (CAN), who provide us with an administrative and advisory function.
A full list of the benefits of membership can be found on the following pages.
