Welcome to October, Consett Community!
As autumn drapes Consett in its enchanting amber hue, October emerges, uniting our community in stories that resonate warmth
Our front cover this month features a captivating snapshot of Snods Karate Club, brilliantly captured by George Ledger, whose talent always encapsulates our community’s essence. For your chance to feature on the front cover, we encourage those with amazing local images to send them across in high quality to firstname.lastname@example.org
Dive into Page 4 to unravel the adventures of the Consett & Vale of Derwent Naturalists’ Field Club. Fondly known as the Consett Walking Club, their recent explorations and insights into future treks mirror their passion for nature and camaraderie. Our sporting spirit shines brightly in “Consett in Focus” on Pages 6-7. From the dedication of the Consett Squash Club and the discipline of Snods Karate Club to the tranquil world of the Derwent Angling Association, we celebrate the heartbeat of our town’s recreational life.
Turn to Page 14 for a special treat. The Life Lines Launch, brought to you by Consett Rotary Club, Lorraine Weightman, and Fr John Bagnall, offers a delightful mix of humour and purpose. Their charity book, filled with humorous illustrated poems, is set to be unveiled at the Consett Library on Thursday, November 2nd, 2023. Join us at 2 pm for an afternoon brimming with verses, laughter, and refreshments, with the first copies available for just £4.99.
