Welcome Bonny Lads and Lasses,

It’s that time of year again! Back to school. So if you’re a student, a teacher, a school staff member, or parent of a student we wish you all the best for this new academic year. And for everyone else, just remember; every day’s a school day!

The front cover for this Month is a fabulous shot by Valerie Winter. I’m sure you’ll agree with us, her photograph is a beautiful snapshot of a local landmark. Can you guess where it was taken?

Let us know on Facebook.

If you’d like your image to be on the front cover next month, just email your high quality photos to editor@consettmagazine.com. We’re looking for a fresh perspective of Consett life.

We absolutely love to hear from people like you! Share your story, article, photograph, art, business, event, charity, music, video, or poetry with the people of Consett.

Stay canny Consett, we hope you have fun reading the free* September edition of Consett Magazine.

Best regards,

*It’ll always be free, contrary to rumours that we are to begin charging for the magazine.
