Robinwood Insights

Six staff members braced themselves for a day in this unforgiving place. Would they make it home for a cuppa by 5 o’clock, or would they succumb to the wilderness?...

We stepped into the cages to find out that yes, it was fast and yes it was really hard to hit the ball. Some of us seemed like naturals and some… well... Not so natural....

Every room was escaped from, with the last group making it with only seconds left, as we proved our teamwork and problem-solving skills were up to scratch!...

This spring the Alston Moor Solidarity with Refugees group were asked if they could help to replace two bicycles that had been stolen from two twin boys in Blyth, Northumberland...

We are really proud that our centre open days have once again been a massive success, raising over £8850 for charities chosen by the centre staff teams...

Perhaps the best thing about working at Barhaugh Hall is the fact that there is always someone with the same day off who wants to do something interesting, go somewhere exciting, and there’s always someone with spare gear and a spare seat in their car. ...
