Dear Consett Magazine readers,
Thanks for picking up this month’s edition.
We’ve had some great feedback from people who really loved the illustrated front cover last month by Father John, so once again we’re delighted to have another one of his creations on the front cover again this month.
In the history section this month, Brian Harrison writes about the history of the Leadgate Miner’s Hall, and how it’s hoped the building will be given a new lease of life after local residents have stepped in and saved the building for the community.
Last month we introduced Kev’s Upcycling. This month on page eight, Kev looks at upcycling vs recycling – it’s a local business we’re very fond of and I’m sure you will be too when you read all about what Kev does.
Lorraine Weightman brings us sunshine (as she always does) on page ten as she reminisces about the school choir at the English Martyrs School in Leadgate. You can also find out how to get a copy of Lorraine’s new book “Telling Tales” on page eleven.
Please also take a moment to look at page nine to read all about Millie’s Mark and how Shotley Bridge Nursery School have managed to become Millie’s Mark certified. It’s a very powerful story and we’re proud to help share the story with our readers about how this top class local nursery have become one of the only nurseries in the Region to be certified with this important award.
If you’d like to share your business or story with us, please give us a call on the number below or drop an email to us. We’re looking forward to hearing from you and can’t wait to share your story with the Consett community.
Have a wonderful April,
Barry Kirkham, Marco Elsy, local businesses who support the magazine through advertising and all the wonderful people who make the Consett Magazine possible.
