Blink and it’s nearly 2022!!,

Hello wonderful people of Consett. we hope you’re keeping warm this December?

The Consett Corona Photo Project is drawing to a close, but in a final installment we’re honouring those that have appeared in the series over the past year. People like Father Bagnall, Lynne from the Corona Vulnerable People and Volunteers Group, Tracey from the vaccination team at Queens Road Surgery, Julie from Tank Girl Training, Graham from The Scotch Arms, Natalie from Brockwell Court, Phoebe, Joseph and not forgetting the four photographers that have brought us this insightful project: Debbie, Chris, George, and Steve. See the great pictures on pages 4 and 5.

Our regular entertainment writer, Lorraine Weightman asks “Why are we predisposed to giving presents?” on page 6.

The Christmas Panto at the Empire is back! find out more and book your tickets on page 9.

Pages 10 and 11 are dedicated to nature and the work that has been undertaken around Consett to preserve and protect the environment.
