The Mount is owned by the Parish but maintained by volunteers, they pay a peppercorn annual rent.
The Mount is a former Methodist chapel in Eighton Banks sat alongside the Bowes Railway Line in Gateshead. It became a community centre about 40 years ago and has been at the heart of the community ever since.
It is run by The Mount Community Association who are a group of volunteers from the area. The Association look after the building and fund raise to support the running of the centre. Its aim is to provide a place for the community to gather and be the heart of the local community.
The hall is available for private hire, regular events, and the Association also puts on special events throughout the year.
There is lots going on this year at the Mount! We have new and regular classes happening weekly, catering for a wide range of interests. These include Zumba Gold, Sugarcrafting, Puppy School, Baby Sensory, Yoga and much more… Please check our Facebook events page for further details on each event or our notice board at the hall.
We’re also undertaking a substantial refurbishment this year to improve the indoor space, facilities, and access to our outdoor areas.
We’re keen to have more people involved, both as active committee members, and as general volunteers for events. Please get in touch if you would like to help!
