The Government has announced that we must close from 31st December 2020. Our Community Café remains open for takeaway orders only. If we can be of any help during the lockdown please get in touch – we’ll get back to you as soon as we can. We look forward to seeing you as soon as we’re allowed to reopen.

All the fun of the fair.

On Thursday 31st August, we will be taking 14 young people on a day trip to Alton Towers.

Leaving Barnard Castle at 7am, staff will be at the YMCA from 6.45am, so we’re asking that you start making your way to the YMCA at this time.

We will return to Barnard Castle no later than 10pm.



  • You should bring either a packed lunch or some money to buy food whilst at Alton towers.
  • We advise you to bring a lightweight waterproof jacket in case of rain (although we hope not in August).
  • Leaving Alton Towers at 6pm, stopping at McDonalds on the way home for those that want (more money required).
  • Spaces will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

We will not reserve spaces for anyone. Spaces will only be secured when a completed consent form, and £30 have been handed into staff.
