End of an era...

Updated: Jan 12, 2020

Not only the End of the Decade …..

In December 19 the Hearth Arts Centre hosted our annual mulled wine and mince pie party. This is a chance for the Trustees to say ‘thank you’ to the volunteers, artists and members of the community who make the Hearth such a welcoming and vibrant place.

Just as last year we were delighted by the Christmas carols sung by children from

Heddon Primary School.

It was especially poignant this year as the Hearth are saying goodbye to two long serving trustees, Naomi Kinghorn and Dr James Hall, who have both reached the end of their six-year stint on the Board.

Naomi has been involved with the Hearth for many years, since first moving to Horsley. Her knowledge of charitable grants and expertise in the heritage sector has been invaluable to the Hearth. Naomi has helped us negotiate our way through the maze of regulations associated with running an arts centre charity and we’re all very grateful for her insight.

The Hearth also says farewell to James Hall, our chair of trustees for the last six years. He has handled this challenging role with his typical calm and methodical approach and for that we are very grateful. James will continue to be involved in the monthly concerts at the Hearth, which are booked well into 2020.

We hope that both Naomi and James will continue to be frequent visitors to events at the Hearth. We wish them both success and our thanks for all their efforts over the last few years.

The board of trustees is always keen to hear from anyone interested in becoming a trustee.
