Activity Centre

We are delighted to announce that Gateshead Scouts are still actively working with Gateshead Council towards the successful completion of the community asset transfer of Whickham Thorns Outdoor Activity Centre. Whilst work towards the legal transfer of the asset continues, the management and operation of the site is being undertaken by Gateshead Scouts. We are hopeful that this partnership will culminate in a new and exciting direction for Whickham Thorns as a hub of adventure in the heart of Gateshead.

Please feel free to get in touch if you feel you have time and skills you wish to contribute to the project, or if you have any questions regarding Whickham Thorns, or Gateshead Scouts. Contact us
