Hello, the good people of Consett!

Welcome to the 78th issue of the Consett Magazine. Can you believe that? We’ve printed and distributed over 780,000 copies of the Consett Magazine! That’s over 12 million pages! Our website consettmagazine.com got over 1 million hits last year and we’re still growing!

We’re delighted to part of such a vibrant and growing community and we hope to continue to play our part by offering great stories and promoting great local businesses.

Thanks to Father John for his incredible illustration on the front cover! If you have a picture you’d like to be featured then send them in to editor@consettmagazine.com

This month we’ve packed our pages with regular favourites from Brian Harrison (Page 4 & 5), Lorraine Weightman (Page 10), Alex Nelson (Page 12), Catherine Meades (Page 11) and local artist Neil Sullivan (Page 14). We’ve also been sent in a series of stories from a new local writer, Angela Tindle (Page 7)

We also are very excited to reveal that local nursery Shotley Bridge Nursery School will be getting a very special guest to unveil their outstanding achievement of Millie’s Mark, find out more on page 9.

As always, if you contact any of the businesses in this issue, be sure to mention where you saw them, without the continued support from our advertisers and contributors, Consett Magazine wouldn’t exist. We’d like to thanks all the people that make this magazine possible. We hope you enjoy this issue and for more stories be sure to visit consettmagazine.com

Have a wonderful June, and remember to pass this magazine to friend or family member when you’re finished with it.

Warmest regards,
Barry Kirkham,
Marco Elsy, and all of the writers,
people, and business sponsors who make
Consett Magazine possible.
