To maintain continuity, our Committee members have agreed to keep their posts until we can hold an AGM.
Membership is usually renewed after the AGM,
so those of you who are currently members will continue to be members until the AGM, whenever that is.

We have prepared a short (~15 minute) period drama based on the tales and memories of local residents.
The play is about the reminiscences of an old lady talking about her experiences during WW2. Although fictitious, it is based on the recollections of several of our residents in Gosforth. We need one cast member to play the lady's son, daughter, grandson or granddaughter -
