A growing number of community organisations in the City of Durham (England) have their own web sites, and this is a list of all those we know about. Click on the logo or name to visit the corresponding web site:

The City of Durham Trust was founded in 1942, which makes it one of the oldest civic amenity societies in England. Its aim is to encourage appreciation, and to further the conservation, of the environment. Whilst valuing our heritage, it seeks a balanced sensitivity with the modern.

Durham City Google Group

The Durham City Google Group is an e-mail list of people concerned about the City of Durham (England) and in particular various proposals for development, including the Market Place, the University Gateway project, Elvet Waterside and the old Ice Rink site. Anybody may read the messages but to take part in discussions you have to sign up.

Crossgate Community Partnership

Crossgate Community Partnership is the local residents’ group. It meets on the last Monday of the month at 7.30 pm in Waddington Street Church Hall. Anyone who lives in Crossgate is invited to attend.

Alzheimer's Society

Are you looking after someone who is confused and forgetful due to dementia? Are you feeling lonely and isolated? If the answer is yes - the Durham and Chester-le-Street Branch of the Alzheimer's Society is here to help you.

Durham Rams

Durham Rams Sword and Morris Men were formed in the early 1960’s, the Rams practise and perform traditional English North Eastern Rapper and Cotswold Morris dances.

Present membership is drawn from the broad spectrum of the community and from as far afield as Northumberland and Teesside. The ‘side’ meets, either to practise or to perform, on most Tuesday nights throughout the year. In addition, especially during the summer months, we take our dancing out to local functions, displays and week-end events.

County Durham Ice Foundation

The County Durham Ice Foundation has as its principal objective to seek the provision of an ice sports arena within the County Durham area. This would serve as an ice sporting venue able to host professional ice hockey games, figure skating competitions and ice galas, be available for use by schools, regional universities and other groups and be a facility that can be used by all levels of ability from recreational through to the sporting elite.
