Inner Strength Yoga

I’m offering online yoga to replace my regular sessions.

Evan’s Bistro

It is with a very heavy heart that Evan’s has decided to make a decision and close all establishments until further notice…..morally as a company that is partnered with 3 charities we feel we would be better placed to use what staff and supplies we have left and really work hard to help the vulnerable members of our communities. We can still be contacted through messenger if any help is required and also if you need anything please click on the following to be directed to loads of amazing volunteers that are willing to give up their own time to assist….Second Bite Cedarwood Cedarwood Trust Whitley Bay Round Table all of which I am working with so please don’t hesitate to contact me directly if need be! These are trying times and makes us all realise what is important to each and every one of us so please also be mindful of the graphics below…..


Our charities all need funding as well so as well as supporting or amazing local businesses and looking after our vulnerable we also have a site you can donate to above that will help towards food poverty and supplying much needed meals to those that can’t afford it. We know it is a financial struggle for all at the moment also so just checking in on a neighbour will go a long way to helping each and every one of us!

Be safe guys and look after each other!

Gareth Bowden and the Evan’s team x

Whitley Bay Round Table

We’re happy to keep running the Whitley Bay Isolation Support Facebook Group and perhaps add something to our website. I think we’re probably best placed to be able to provide a neutral space for information to be held etc. We’re also looking at maybe doing a leaflet drop in Whitley Bay with contact details on for people who don’t do Social Media or even have an internet connection.

Ocean Zen C.I.C

Now closed for face to face work and room bookings. We felt we needed to take this action as many of our activities and events are group work. Also as practitioners who work there we have had to ensure we safeguard ourselves and vulnerable members of our families. We are offering online appointments for Hypnotherapy, coaching, listening, card readings and spiritual guidance and also looking to run some classes online x


We are working extremely hard to urgently re-model how we support people at this time. We are still supporting some of the most vulnerable people and families affected by cancer.
