Gosforth Residents Association
Welcomes You

A registered Charity run for the benefit of the community

Located in the heart of Gosforth, Gosforth Residents Association (GRA) provides a place for the local community to get together or run group sessions either on a private hire basis or as a charitable service supported by the GRA.

Thank You to the four volunteers who cleared all the weeds away from along the side of the centre,

well done ladies, it looks great.

The Easter Coffee Morning took place on 23rd March and raised £141.25. with thanks to ASDA for the tea, coffee and biscuits. Special thanks to the ladies for the organisation.

Carpet Bowls, Community Bingo, Knightsbridge Art Club and

Craft and Knit 2gether joined the event. 

The photos below show the display of original art work, along with the raffle prize table,

a tasty supply of cakes to go with the tea/coffee and Pebble art pictures. 

The hall can be privately hired for events and parties for an hourly rate (£17.50), see the Contact Page.

An example of a group who hire the hall from time to time can be found, along with a video, on the About page.
