Welcome to the February 2018 edition of Consett Magazine!

Already February! How time flys!

Hope you all made it though the snow? We’ve got a bumper issue this month with the usual fantastic history stories from both Lorraine Weightman and Brian Harrison.

We’ve also got a load of other great articles on pages 10, 12, 15 and 17.


On the subject of positivity, we’d like to remind you about why we started Consett Magazine. Unlike other local publications, our aim is to share good news in the community and give you a platform to submit your stories and share them with other local people. Remember, the magazine is free and always will be. It is supported by great local businesses who advertise with us, please remember to mention Consett Magazine if you contact one of the advertisers from this edition or call 01207 438 292 to book your own advert in next month’s edition.

We’re in need of new writers and stories from people of all ages to be published in 2018. Think you can write 300-500 words on your favourite topic? If the answer is yes, please send your story to editor@consettmagazine.com along with any supporting photographs (nice high quality images preferred, straight from your phone or camera – not downloaded from Facebook please ).

We hope you’ll enjoy this edition and remember to visit consettmagazine.com for even more local stories, news, articles, videos, and photographs.

Best wishes for Feb 2018 from:
