Here is the editorial from our November issue of the Consett Magazine. Enjoy these words with our editor Ivan Laidler.
Happy November, people of Consett!
The town we live in is currently in a state of limbo between quiet retreat and bustling retail park. As it stands, the area around Genesis Way is flowering into a very prosperous section of Consett and should serve to greatly stimulate our local economy. With the likes of Tesco, Carpet Right and B&Q already confirmed as bringing their stores to us, things are looking up.
There is still a cluster of store space laying empty down there and a little bird in the pub told me that clothing retailer Primark supposedly has its sights set on it. We contacted Primark to confirm this, but they cannot officially confirm anything as this moment in time, so the rumour is still a rumour. Consett Magazine will certainly be keeping you updated on how our retail park develops over the coming months and into the new year.
Bringing the magazine back into the picture, our November issue has a nice varied selection of stories available to digest. Flick back to our contents page to see what’s going on!
As always, please enjoy your read and don’t forget to pass your magazine on to your friends and family!
