Meet the staff- Shauna

Shauna is the smiley face you see every day in reception.

She has been our apprentice since December 2020 and the place couldn’t run without her, a fountain of knowledge of all things CEC.

Macmillan Coffee Morning

27 April 2022

On National Tea Day we held a coffee morning in reception to raise some funds for Macmillan.

It was a lovely morning, many of our tenants donated biscuits and cakes, as well as Gina and Shauna baking (the red velvet cakes were AMAZING). So many of the lovely folk here donated in cash or by card and we managed to raise a grand total of £87.67. I just want to say Thank You to everyone who got involved!

Change in management

11 April 2022

Mark has been a part of Blyth CEC for as many years as we can remember, first as Ray’s sidekick, and when Ray parted ways Mark stepped up to run the centre. As of the end of January 2022 Mark has moved on to pastures new and we hope he has settled in to his new role.

Georgina has come in to captain the ship, having a background in office work and managerial roles, and we look forward to working with her and seeing where this role takes her. If you see her in the office, pop by and say hi!
