Dear Consett Magazine readers,
This is the one hundredth issue of Consett Magazine and we’d like to thank everyone who has contributed to the magazine over the years, and hope we’ll be able to reach 200 or even 1000 issues!
In this issue you’ll find out about the Consett Coronavirus Photo Project and how the project’s images will be a time capsule to people in the future about what Consett was like during a global pandemic, a very well done to everyone involved, we even used a photograph from the project for the front cover this month (pages 4 & 5).
Gary Holliday, a local stone mason has been given a highly prestigious award for his high standards of crafting skills while working on Durham Cathedral over the last six years, and his commitment to not only his own skills, but his passion to pass those valuable skills onto mentees and apprentices – preserving these important skills and methods for future generations (pages 8-9).
These are all precisely the types of positive local stories we love to hear about.
If you’ve got a story or something you think is positive and local – we’d love to hear from you.
Have a wonderful March,
Barry Kirkham, Marco Elsy,
and everyone who makes Consett Magazine possible.
