I’d like to inform you that I have just finished working on Mike Ellison’s old message board posts, and have now uploaded them onto the Hebburn archives, here: http://hebburnarchives.info, under the ‘Message Board Archives’ cloud.
I’m pretty confident that some of you – Lilian comes to mind - will look at the old posts on Mike’s archived message board and think, this seems like only yesterday.
And its goodbye from him

I've been told that its unfair to keep people hanging on, so this is my (very) hastily arrangeed departure.
This board - renamed Hebburn & Mid-Tyne Tales is now under the full control of Vikki Lawler (Tree Tales). But Norman, Kevin, Val and the others are still here to help her.
The new (temporary) appearance is entirely my doing, so I'm sure that Vikki will want to change it again when she gets her feet under the table. I'm sure she'll also have lots of other ideas for freshening up the board and moving it on. So please do continue to give the same incredible support to Vikki's stewardship of this community resource as you have for the last decade under mine.
As this will literally be my last visit to the board, I've disabled responses to this message (because I won't see them). But if anyone does want to contact me at anytime, just email.
Thanks everyone - its been an incredible experience and a real priviledge so I'm really going to miss it. But I've reached a point in my life where I need to change some of my priorities and a clean break from this time-consuming element is definitely the best option.

The above website addresses, which Mike showed, are now defunct, so I replaced them with x's.
