Dear Consett Magazine readers,

We hope that everyone in Consett is ready for the spring weather to truly arrive this month. Our fingers are crossed.

In this month’s magazine you’ll find plenty of great articles from great local content producers, like Neil Sullivan, and Alex Nelson.

In early May, Garry “Scrapman” Hughes is organising a special event, “Crushing Cans For Testicular Cancer” at Time bar. Read all about it on page 15 and remember to start saving your empty pop and beer cans.

On the front cover this month, you’ll see Bazza Davison’s dog “Tag” on the Gill Bridge. He’s a cute one, isn’t he! Thanks for the photo Bazza!

If you’d like to see your photograph on the front cover of the May issue, then please send it to us your image (in high quality please) via email to – We’re looking for lovely Spring flowers, awesome pets, and awe-inspiring shots from around the Derwent Valley.

Stay classy Consett!

Barry Kirkham, Marco Elsy,
and the entire Consett Magazine team.
