Spearhead Trust @ Bell's Farmhouse
The Spearhead Trust is a voluntary organisation setup in 2001 by Sid and Dot Forster. They along with several other volunteers help provide a safe and welcoming place where local residents are able to access vital services.
Some of what we do
A Family Support service is managed by a Senior Family Support Worker who based at the farmhouse on Thursday and Friday from 0930 – 1500.
We have close links with all the local schools and nurseries at the Spearhead Trust. Maths English and Arts & Crafts classes are available. Please ask for more info
We have an OAP club every Wednesday between 1200 and 1400. We cook a homemade lunch and pudding free of charge and offer great place for the elderly to gather.
Time to make a change
When Bells Farm Community Centre was first accessed the building had only a few old chairs and tables and was not used by the Community. So we set to work and applied for funding to modenise the facilities at Bells Farm Community Centre which includes computers, tables, chairs, settees, kitchen equipment, sports equipment, interactive white boards and overhead projectors.
The centre lay dormant and closed every day way back then but today it is a hub of activity allowing hard to reach families to access help and advice from a range of services at the farmhouse such as family support, education and recreational courses including Maths and English, Health and Social Care, Parenting, Domestic abuse, arts and crafts and cooking.
With a heart for the community
These services have become invaluable to the local residents who access them weekly. Another one of our services is the food bank, which has been running for a few years and is supported by Costco and Home of the Free Church ( they meet at Bells Farm Community Centre once a week).
