Other Groups in and around Gorebridge
UPDATE: The current groups are below, however in Autumn 2018 Gorebridge Futures will be creating new group directory. Can you help?
As part of the work of Gorebridge Futures a new directory of local groups and businesses will be collated in Aug/Sept 2018, can you help put it together? We are seeking information on the who, what, why, when, who and how of everything in Gorebridge. The premise is to pull together (and then keep updated) an online directory for Gorebridge (eh23.org.uk), a place where all groups can access on a regular basis. If you can help please do get in touch with the Trust (in the first instance) who are contributing to this piece of work.
If any of the following links are out of date please let us know so we can update the page.
