The Falcon Centre is a popular venue for community activity. Housing the local library and railway museum it also provides a space for a range of groups offering a variety of services and activities -from an artisan baking community to a pre-school playgroup.

Several interested parties met in the Falcon Centre in late October 2018 to discuss its continued use as a community asset. Representatives of the library, baking and playgroups were joined by people currently using, or hoping to use, the Falcon Centre facilities for activities such as yoga, artistic production, kitchen facility use, history workshops and as a potential home for GP services with the possible closure of Wylam’s Riversdale surgery. Representatives of the County and Parish Councils were also present. John Hampton and Andy Haddon conveyed the positive message about the Centre to November’s parish council meeting.

In December a drop session was held at the Centre where members of the public discussed its future use with members of Bywell Labour party.

This is a good opportunity for Labour Party members in the constituency to take part in developing a community resource offering their expertise in the socialist and cooperative tradition.
