Community development

The Cedarwood Trust exists to improve our Estate, to support people from the Estate to be the best they can be and to provide activities and programmes which make our community stronger.

For this we need your help.

We want to know what will make a difference to you, how can we support you to improve our community?

In the past few months, thanks to your support, we have:

  • Purchased the Avenue site to re-open and develop for community use
  • Built a pocket park on Weyhill Avenue
  • Created a Garden of Memories on Avon Avenue
  • Created a Play Map with our children
  • Worked with our partners at North Tyneside Council, the Police, Phoenix Detached Youth Project and the Meadows to organise graffiti removal, street cleaning and planting activities to improve our Estate
  • Developed a range of activities to support our community
  • Created opportunities for listening to your ideas for change through our Community Organising team

Cedarwood Trust

What a week here at the centre.

We welcomed over 150 people to our first ever Cedarwood Panto with our friends at Blowin a Hooley and supported by the Stop Loan Sharks Team. We were delighted to be joined by the fantastic Jimmy Nail who came to view our performance this afternoon.

We have also had our AGM and annual Christmas light switch on which was heavily attended. Stalls, raffle and the big switch on by Kim Tserkezie.

We also say goodbye to our CEO Phil McGrath who leaves for pastures new. Phil has become well know for his passion to promoting a better world on the estate. Through his passion, kind heart, his dedication and his ability to overcome barriers has lead to some amazing work on the estate. We wish him the very best in his new role and thank you for all your hard work.

We welcome Wayne, our incoming CEO who joins the team in January and can’t wait to get started continuing the hard work the trust are dedicated in providing.
