Welcome Bonny Lads and Lasses,
September, it’s back to school month. So if you’re a student, a teacher, a school staff member, or a parent we wish you all the best for this new academic year. We know it’s been particularly difficult for everyone over the last 18 months, but we hope with the new school year beginning, everyone can try to get a sense of complete normality returning.
The front cover for this month is a fantastic shot by Pamela Fowler. I’m sure you’ll agree with us, her photograph is a colourful masterpiece.
We’re always on the look out for images giving an original perspective of Consett life. So, if you’d like your photograph to be on the front cover next month, just email your high quality photos to email@example.com.
In this edition, you’ll find lot of positive local news and images including those from the Consett Corona Photo Project on pages four and five, Fusion for Business aims to create more local jobs on page six, Donald Johnson looks back over his life from the grand age of 80 on page seven, Lorraine Weightman covers the story about a new eco-friendly business started last September on page nine, “Say No to Consett Incinerator” campaigners tell their story and how you can get involved on page eleven, Consett Street Friends by Joyce Shaw is on page thirteen, and Ian Hall provides a Consett Steelworks inspired poem on page fifteen.
We absolutely love to hear from people like you! Share your story, article, photograph, art, business, event, charity, music, video, or poetry with the people of Consett.
Barry Kirkham, Marco Elsy, and
Everyone who makes the magazine possible.
