Kate and Coral have worked tirelessly to ensure that all of the community work becomes sustainable for the benefit of the community. Through lockdown, North Star Housing provided the residents with laptops so that they could continue to meet online. Before the pandemic they had been working towards becoming a community association of their own accord. They have now achieved this, registering earlier in the year with a young chair, a secretary and a treasurer. Before the pandemic the group had worked hard to raise money for different community intiatives such as Christmas Lights for the village.
Words cannot describe the journey that the community have been on, one that continued through lockdown, one that will continue into the future. The Community House is not just for those of Wellgarth but one for the whole of Evenwood and we know that those that have set up and joined the Evenwood Community Association will safeguard it for the whole community.
