Ian Lavery, the National Chair of The Labour Party was in Hexham at the end of July.

Ian and I visited No. 28 in the east of Hexham.

No. 28 is a community house that offers courses and advice and is an invaluable hub for local people. The community garden at the back houses the Lion’s Men’s shed.

Thank you to Claire and Paul for talking to us about the really important work that they are doing in the community and thank you to Hexham Community Partnership and Karbon Homes for making it a reality.
