There is a formal group of users of the Mechanics Institute called the ‘Friends of Denholme Mechanics’.
The ‘Friends’ group now meet regularly to discuss matters about the Mechanics and any issues the user groups may have. There is a formal constitution and member groups benefit from discounts in room hire.
The ‘Friends’ particularly want new groups to start using the Mechanics as there are several times when rooms in the building are available.
User groups include:
Over 50s (Denholme Elders)
Denholme Community Association
Local History Group
St Paul’s Wives
Denholme Community Gradens
Chair: Peter Foster
