Gosforth Residents Association
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.
The hall can usually be privately hired for events and parties for an hourly rate, but due to a current shortage of committee members this is not now possible. If you would like to help keep this facilicity open please pop in during any of the groups meetings, they can pass on your details and expression of interest.
An example of a group who hire the hall from time to time can be found, along with a video, on the About page.
