I want to empahasise that Mike's Message board was a totally different one. It has nothing to do with this site.
This message board is 6 years old, quickly created by me in Nov 2016.
I did it because Vikki Lawlor gave notice that Mike's site was closing down next week. The reason was that Barry Cram had used information from 'her' board and hadnt gave her credit in his 'Streets of Hebburn' book (Which was wrong because he had credited her).
Then when she found out I was organising a replacement message board she immediately closed Mike's site down to stop us collecting visitors email addresses. WHY?
That's how we lost a lot of Mike's regulars.
Over those 6 years, a lot of old visitors have found this 'Hebburn and our Neighbours' board, but not all of them..
Some old regulars eg Kevin Blair,Joyce Price, The Wilkies etc prefer Face Book, which is their choice.
For anyone wanting to learn something about their Local History often illustrated with old photos, then this is the TOP site.
