It is the time of year when we can look forward to getting out more in the lighter evenings and enjoying our lovely village and its setting here an the Mouth of the Tyne. We are all concerned about looking after the village, so why not come to the Annual General Meeting of the Tynemouth Village Association on Tuesday 3rd April in the Parish Centre?
Professor John Derry is Professor Emeritus, University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. He is the writer of many books on history from the 60’s onwards and will be giving a talk on the Emperor Hadrian (the man not the wall). As I am sure you are all familiar with the wall, it will be interesting to find out more about the man who gave it his name.
Tynemouth Village Association is a civic society whose aim is to increase awareness of the beauty, history and character of Tynemouth village, the ‘jewel in the crown’ of North Tyneside. We try to protect and enhance those features which make it such a special place to live, work and relax. This is through planning with councils, our newsletter, meetings, social, and family activities.
There are two main events each year, the AGM in Spring when there is always a speaker on a topic of local interest, and the Ceilidh in the Autumn. Last year’s Ceilidh was a great success with a lot of people joining in the dancing and enjoying a pie and pea supper. Members also receive copies of the Newsletter and can join the Committee if they wish to take a more active part in the local community.
For more information about the Association see www.tynemouthvillage.org.uk.
