We were delighted with the success of the Happy to Chat launch in North Shields at the end of January. We had a range of different people and organisations get together to share a chat and a cuppa. Whitley Bay Big Local also held a similar event to launch the scheme in Whitley Bay.
There will now be fortnightly events on a Tuesday 10am to 12pm at the Beacon Centre, starting 11 February (excluding 3 March) and Whitley Bay Big Local will be running regular events, keep an eye out on their social media pages. The aim is to expand this scheme out to local cafes and other organisations in the hope to get the people of North Tyneside starting new conversations over a cuppa.
