Welcome to the June 2024 issue of Consett Magazine, your source of community news since August 2012. 

As we publish our 139th edition of the free print magazine, we take pride in offering a fresh perspective on local news and events, focusing on the positive and uplifting stories that truly reflect the spirit of our area. Unlike other media outlets that may prioritise sensationalism and divisive content, Consett Magazine remains dedicated to fostering community spirit and cooperation.

This issue is packed with features that showcase the resilience and creativity of Consett’s residents and businesses. From the century-long floral artistry at Beveridge’s Florist to the innovative practices at Apheya Animal Nutrition, we highlight the local talents that enhance our community’s character. Our coverage of the commendable Ofsted results at Bishop Ian Ramsey School in Medomsley also celebrates educational excellence right at our doorstep.

Furthermore, we continue to support and promote local enterprises, understanding their crucial role in our community’s economic health. This month, we also look at how temporary changes, like the refurbishments at McDonald’s and Wetherspoons, can lead to broader reflections on the local economy, sustainability and cleanliness of our town.

At Consett Magazine, we believe that local journalism holds tremendous power. This belief would not be possible without the exceptional support and contributions from organisations such as Consett in Focus and the awesome local companies that advertise with us. Their contributions not only allow us to keep you informed but also inspire you. Remaining independent and focused on the interests and success of Consett, we strive to create a more robust community, one story at a time.

Thank you for joining us in celebrating the best of Consett – here’s to another month of great stories and shared successes.

If you’ve got a story you’d like to share, no matter how small or trivial, we want to hear about it!

With appreciation and gratitude,
Barry Kirkham, Marco Elsy, and everyone who has dedicated their efforts to making this free monthly magazine a reality for over a decade.
