These meetings are for those wishing to help in any capacity including general help, running interest groups and joining the steering committee in whatever capacity.

We do need a minimum of 8 people for a committee for the first year as well as volunteers for other roles.

We have a provisional venue for the launch meeting, inaugural meeting and future monthly meetings: Blyth Cricket and Rugby Club on Plessey Road. It has good bus links to the town centre and caters well for any disabled members, and most importantly has a kitchen we can use for refreshments:
