The Lookwide Centre






The Lookwide Centre was built & completed in 2002 & is owned & managed by the 1st Hexham Scout Group. The centre is widely used by the scout group & is also available for hire by a wide variety of local community groups, visiting scout groups & individuals wishing to book private functions.

The centre is very popular for childrens birthday parties, with a main hall that can seat up to 70 people. We also offer extremely competitive rates of hire for all events.
