About Us


The Mount is a former Methodist chapel in Eighton Banks sat alongside the Bowes Railway Line in Gateshead. It became a community centre about 40 years ago and has been at the heart of the community ever since. This wonderful building is owned and supported by Lamesley Parish Council.

It is run by The Mount Community Association who are a group of volunteers from the area. The Association look after the building and fund raise to support the running of the centre. Its aim is to provide a place for the community to gather and be the heart of the local community.


Regular events run in the hall but the Association also puts on special events throughout the year. Please check out our Facebook page for details of what and when they are on.

If you would like to hire the hall or events or parties, please email us or use the contact form on the Contact Us page.
