I agree that this wonderful message board is such a valuable part of so many folks’ lives far and wide - new visitors and old - and does us proud.
It’s is heartening to realise that the good folk of this board, like yourself, do not take for granted the very things that deserve our gratitude the most, and that we do not assume that whenever we need something, it will be there. There’s a saying, ‘You don’t realise what you have until it’s gone.
In November 2016, Norman Dunn, after hearing how saddened the regulars were to see the message board end, immediately set up his own, http://hebburn.info/, to the appreciation of the regulars, especially those living away from Hebburn.
It’s thanks to Norman, for keeping this very unique, interesting and lively message board up-and-running, as so many folk, far and wide - especially the ex-pats – rely on it as a daily contact and a valuable link to news back
I think we’re all a bit spoilt for choice - what, with interesting stories and chat; Alan’s ‘Wotsits’; Lilian, Alex, Elizabeth, Don and others’ wise comments and reliable long memories; the Hebburn Archives: http://hebburnarchives.info/; Patrick Brennan’s historical knowledge: http://www.donmouth.co.uk/; Norman’s ever-growing picture website: http://www.gatesheadeast.co.uk/; Peter Cook, our new shipping aficionado, with an immense shipping knowledge; Trish’s sterling, on-going charity work; John K’s excellent humour; Brian’s immense music and film knowledge; James Goring’s ‘Then & Now’ and other fantastic pictorial contributions; Ricky, and Ken Wood’s excellent computer advice; Tom Barker, Mac Cummings, Michael Lynch and Llyn Green’s great little stories; Allan Campbell’s adventures, and last, but not least, the numerous contributions from everyone else.
It makes you proud, doesn’t it?
Norman, a huge thank you for keeping the board a safe and happy place to visit; may it keep on bringing joy, happiness and entertainment to us all,
