Web Pages

As has been discussed in the past we investigated the feasibility of having a presence on the internet and the best advice we received was to join forces with an existing and complementary website. This website, dedicated to the history of the Gateshead area, was delighted to accommodate us, as we are of mutual and enriching benefit . 

We are working closely with the publisher who is associated with our colleagues at The Felling Heritage Group which is also represented on this website

On this website, in addition to this page, is our own history page and an additional page on the webmaster's own personal take on Windy Nook
If anyone would like to put something on e.g. memories of Windy Nook or old Photo’s or documents then if you could send them to me Jim Turnbull, details below and I will get them added to the web. For those not sure on how to get onto the web, but would like to, then we can arrange a separate night for a teach in.
