    Fix It Cafe

    Sharing skills and knowledge

    We have had loads of interest in our Fix It Cafe event but we are desperate for volunteers in order for it to go ahead.

    A few things about volunteering at the Fix It Cafe....

    * You don't have to be trades person or an expert in the field to come along and help.

    * Only an hour or two of your time will be enough.

    * We are not guaranteeing that items will be fixed, no money will be exchanged.

    * You will be paid in lots of appreciation, tea, biscuits and me looking after you. Also, the warm in heart knowing you have helped your community to be more self-sufficient and saving waste from landfill.


    Please get in touch if someone can help us - danielle@willibyrocs.co.uk / 01914898224






















  • The history of Bilton Hall!


    Bilton Hall Community Trust was originally set up as Low Simonside Community Association in 1979, a former school site which transferred to the now Simonside Primary School in Jarrow. The Trust is now a registered charity (1171907) since March 6th, 2017.

    The Trust was formed to develop and manage the Community Centre with the aim of turning it into a successful, self-sustaining centre, providing the community with somewhere they can come to learn, relax and engage in activities.

    ​The Trust is in the process of completing a community asset transfer and agreeing a 40 year peppercorn lease with South Tyneside Council.

    ​Gradually over time, the Trust will invested in the Community Centre, securing capital grants and fundraising to improve the facilities. With further grant funding established in future will look to secure staff to help manage the site.

    ​Today the community centre is a thriving with around 20,000 visits from the South Tyneside community per year.

    The Trust is on its way to a 100% financial sustainability by maximising the income generation techniques above and this will allow the organisation to become less grant funded reliant and more financially secure for future generations to benefit from the centre.
