Welcome Bonny Lads and Lasses,

Consett Magazine is proud to keep the local community informed and up to date with Consett happenings. We try to do this by staying away from any doom and gloom. However, in recent weeks and months, it’s come to our attention that our town is divided. Indeed the country is divided and even the whole world seems to be divided right now, and the pandemic has only exacerbated the situation. Let us explain: Whether you’re pro vaccinations or an anti-vaxxer, right or left wing politically, mask wearer or mask hater, brexiteer or remainer; it seems our society is more divided than ever. So we pose the question, ‘what can we do to make the situation better for everyone?’ We think it’s fair to ask that everyone is more kind and considerate to one another.

Whatever the reasoning behind our divisions, we hope you can go out there and make another human’s day better! Positivity is what may help restore equilibrium within our society, just by being empathetic to each other. You could do something nice today. It could just be as simple as giving someone a compliment on the street, leaving a local business a positive review online or by helping someone in need. After all, we don’t know what another person is feeling or how hard their life may be. So let’s leave the politics and divisiveness to the side for the moment, and let’s try to make our community stronger. At least that’s our hope for the future, to spread positivity in Consett, County Durham.

We’re on the lookout for images giving authentic perspectives of life in Consett. So, if you’d like your photograph to be on the front cover next month, just email your high quality photos to editor@consettmagazine.com. We are also encouraging our readers to tell their story, share their photographs, art, business announcements, events, charities, music, videos, or poetry to us too. Let us know what you want to share by visiting consettmagazine.com or just drop us an email and one of our team will be in touch very soon.

Best regards for the month of October,

Barry Kirkham, Marco Elsy, and Everyone who makes this magazine possible.
