Dear Consett readers,

It’s an interesting time of year, September, the Schools are back (after an especially long time, due to the pandemic) – so we’re hoping everyone and everything can get back to some sort of normality, all while staying safe of course.

This month we have some great local content from regulars like Brian Harrison and Lorraine Weightman; Buzzila is back to update us on his musical endeavors, MP Richard Holden discusses local NHS capacity, and Debbie Todd profiles local Taekwondo Champion,
Jade Slavin.

We’re looking for people to get involved in Consett Magazine.

Have you got a story you’d like to share? Are you a photographer who’d like to see your photo on the front cover next month? Do you have a tip-off about something great that’s happening locally? If the answer is yes, then email us on

We accept content from local people, charities, businesses, politicians, schools, and anyone who’s got something to say. You could comment on Consett Magazine articles on Facebook complaining about the author or subject, or you could write your own. Have your say too! We can’t wait to help you tell your story and reach our print audience for 10,000+ people or online at where we get hundreds of thousands of visitors.

We hope you’ll enjoy this months Consett Magazine,

Barry Kirkham, Marco Elsy, and all the people & businesses who make the magazine possible.
