Great News for our Community Enterprise 


Newton & Bywell Connects has been awarded a grant of £10,019, under the 

                                                 Village SOS scheme funded by the Big Lottery.

The funds will be used to help improve broadband services in the area, provide some computer equipment to be used in the Community Hall, support and promote the activities of the community enterprise and the social group, and provide training for local residents.

This is a great result and will be a real bonus for the team working for our community 

Community Enterprise  -Newton & Bywell Connects Ltd

Following our meeting of 24 January 2012 we have followed the advice of Social Enterprise Northumberland and initially formed a company limited by guarantee.

The community enterprise was registered on 31 January 2012 as

Newton & Bywell Connects Ltd 

company registration no 7929488

The objects of the enterprise have been worded to ensure that any benefit stays with                             the local community :

     'to stimulate, promote and secure community enterprise, action, activity and renewal in a manner designed to maximise the benefits accruing to the community.'

The memorandum and articles of association can be found here

A big thank you to the four members of the community who have agreed to take on the role as directors. 

Chair                                    Anne Moyle, 

Company Secretary               Peter Stoddart 

Directors         Ali Vipond,  Beth Wright and Alan Rutherford.
