Dear Consett Magazine Readers,

Unbelievably we are halfway through 2016 already!

How fast has 2016 went for you?

In this month’s edition, our resident Consett historian Brian Harrison is searching for his Great Grandfather, Thomas Dowson. Lorraine Weightman reminisces back to when she was eighteen and had just discovered Botto’s Nightclub. Lisa Guthrie is voted Sun FM’s most stylish blogger. June sees the grand opening in Beamish of two new shops, W.Smith’s Chemist and the JR & Edis Photographic Studio. And Watson & Jackson launch their pop up coffee shop on the 2nd June in aid of Willow Burn Hospice.
Did you know that Consett Magazine has a bit of a motto we go by, we try not to report on anything negative (we leave that up to the local newspapers) but instead we focus on positivity in the Consett community. Our motto is “To inspire, educate, inform, and entertain”, so please take a moment to let us know about all the great things you and everyone in the community is up to, we want to hear from you!
