A NORTH Northumberland charity held an evening to celebrate past, present and future work.

At Bell View in Belford, people were able to meet staff, find out about the charity’s current work, their future plans and offer suggestions.

A light buffet and refreshments were provided before a presentation. Afterwards a guided tour of the premises was given for those who were unaware of the centre and its operations.

Bell View is a small community-based charity run by local residents to support and enable older people to live independently in their community of choice.

They offer a range of services to support older people throughout north Northumberland including luncheon clubs, shopping trips, day care and support in the home.

The resource centre also acts as a village hub with many societies and clubs using it as base, from arts and craft, Nordic walking clubs to the Mothers’ Union and also offers a base for concerts and slideshows.
