Hello everyone and welcome to the April edition of the Consett Magazine. Things have been a bit different here at Consett Magazine headquarters this month as our favourite editor Ivan is taking a well earned break leaving me with the role of guest editor for the month.
This issue is packed with great stories to help get you through those April showers and into a sunny Spring. The big thing which is happening this April is the return of Consett Festival. Last year we had a fantastic day at the rugby club enjoying some great music and even better company. I highly recommend you head along to this years event. You can find out more in our entertainment section this month.
Alongside this we have a whole host of other stories from around the area from the beautiful Northern Lights to what’s been going on at Derwentside College. I hope you enjoy this edition of Consett.
