UK cycle event at Corsenside Parish Hall
Welcome to Corsenside Parish Hall (Registered Charity number 1067904).
In 2016 a new management committee began a programme of development to secure the future of the building, with upgraded facilities serving the people living in or within reach of the parish of Corsenside, including Ridsdale, East and West Woodburn, the numerous dispersed dwellings within the parish and people from neighbouring parishes too. We are close to the boundary of the Northumberland National Park and we aim to offer facilities and events that that will be of help and interest to visitors to the Park as well as to local people. The hall is easily accessed from the A68.
We are tackling urgently needed repairs to the building including the floor in the main hall and the hall's windows, which have been replaced with more energy-efficient double glazing. This work has been generously funded by grants from the Northumberland National Park Small Grants Fund, The Northumberland County Community Chest and Northumberland County Council's Members' Local Improvement Schemes through Councillor John Riddle.
 - NEW DOORS are now in place, giving improved security, safety and heat retention.
 - NEW  NAME BOARD and NOTICE BOARD now in place.
