Mashamshire Community Office is a registered charity, established in 2003, converting an unused Police House into a one-stop community facility. The Community Office offers local residents and businesses access to information and services. Visitors to the office will be able to find out all about Mashamshire, the surrounding area and what it has to offer from our team of helpers who are mainly volunteers. We are responsible for promoting Masham and all it’s facilities to both residents and visitors via the Visit Masham website as well as via our regular newsletters.
We also provide a home for Acorns Pre-school Playgroup, Masham Parish Council, the Rural Community Constable and the Masham Community Library.
An addition in 2013 was the Blue Light Gallery – this provides exhibition and retail space for local artists and crafts people – see below.
We produce a regular e-newsletter – you can access old issues here. You can sign up for the newsletter at the bottom of this page.
All this is only possible thanks to a dedicated team of part-time staff and enthusiastic volunteers who all love where we live. Together we aim to keep our small rural community, which has so much to offer, alive, active and vibrant for all those who live and visit here. If you would like to volunteer at the Community Office please contact us:
