Meet the Team

FionaFiona Macdonald – Coordinator

“I have been with Gateway into the Community since day one. I am based at the office in Hexham Community Centre and I look forward to hearing from you. I enjoy getting to know you all at the groups. I attend the choir Voicebox every week, which always cheers me up and makes me feel happy.
We would love to know about the activities you want to try or would like us to start. Gateway into the Community is a member-led organisation so please let us know what you want from us.”


JuliaJulia Ferguson – Life Chances Manager

“I was the local coordinator for Western Tynedale for 6 years, but now I have a new title: Life Chances Manager. I look after the youth groups and I am the development worker for the training courses you have said you want to take part in, including Creative Arts and ASDANs in personal and social development and employability skills.
I also love sports and enjoy being part of the two new sports Academies, one for men and one for women.”


GabbyGabby Keaveny – Administrator

“I am the one who makes sure all our accounts and paperwork are in order. I work at the office in Hexham Community Centre in the mornings, where I take your calls and attend to your needs if you pop in.
When I am not scowling at my computer, I welcome the chance to get to know you better, especially at events such as discos or concerts.”
