Our Members

Our members are truly part of the Ad Gefrin family and will always receive a very special welcome from us.
To date we have launched our founding memberships scheme for those that wish to embark on the journey with us from the beginning,  and who wish to realise our vision to create a lasting legacy for Northumberland.  Borrowing from Old English we have named the membership ‘Corenkyn’ meaning ‘Chosen Family’.  In becoming Corenkyn, you become one of our chosen family and part of a very special community.
We will be launching Corengyst (Chosen Guest) our Annual Pass Membership, later in the year.

Our Community

For us, it has always been about Community. There is a deep-seated sense of hope that builds from a pride in our connection to our past and our present, nurturing a confidence in ourselves as individuals and as a community.

Wooler is at the heart - a small market town nestling at the foot of the Cheviot hills, gateway to the Northumberland National Park, and home to so many that have never doubted us and continue to support all that Ad Gefrin can be. We want to inspire self-belief, a sense of pride and self-worth in those that work with us, but more than this we want to stimulate hope for Wooler.

“Those that have the greatest faith in us are the people of our local community. They have embraced the concept of Ad Gefrin and continue to support us along our journey.”
