'Newcastle on the Edge' Installed and Launched

Amid a very stormy Saturday morning with driving rain, History Week's 'Newcastle on the Edge' Exhibition was launched within the sanctuary of the Maritime Centre at Honeysuckle. Many thanks to the Presenters and those brave souls who made it, especial thanks to the Maritime Centre's volunteers Sue, Sue and Pauline, who provided us with a wonderful morning tea with scones. It was greatly appreciated.
