They can also access changing facilities and have the opportunity to get a hot drink in centres with café facilities, and charge up mobile phones, during opening hours.
Active Northumberland chief executive Mark Warnes said: “We know this is an incredibly hard time for many local residents who have been without power, heat or telephone reception since Friday night.
“There are a number of rest centres operating around the county and we too are opening our doors to anyone who wishes to warm up and freshen up.
“Just make yourself known to a member of our reception staff who will help you access these facilities.”
