Consett Magazine – October 2021 Editorial – Consett Magazine
Welcome Bonny Lads and Lasses,
Consett Magazine takes pride in keeping the local community informed and up to date with Consett events. We try to do this by staying away from any pessimism. However, in recent weeks and months it has come to our attention that our city is divided. Indeed, the country is divided and even the whole world seems to be divided right now, and the pandemic has only exacerbated the situation. Let us explain: Whether you are pro vaccinations or anti-vaccination, politically right-wing or left-wing, mask wearer or mask hater, brexiteer or rest; it seems our society is more divided than ever. So we ask the question “what can we do to improve the situation for everyone?” We think it’s fair to ask everyone to be kinder and considerate to each other.
Whatever the reasoning behind our divisions, we hope you can go out there and make another human’s day better! Positivity is what can help restore balance in our society, simply by being empathetic to each other. You could do something good today. It can be as simple as giving someone a compliment on the street, leaving a positive review for a local business online, or helping someone in need. After all, we don’t know how another person feels or how difficult their life can be. So let’s put politics and divisions aside for now, and try to make our community stronger. At least that’s our hope for the future, to spread positivity in Consett, County Durham.
We are looking for images that provide authentic perspectives on Consett’s life. So if you want your photo to be on the cover next month, just send your high quality photos to [email protected] We also encourage our readers to tell their story, share their photographs, artwork, commercials, events, charities, music, videos or poetry. Let us know what you would like to share by visiting consettmagazine.com or just drop us an email and a member of our team will get back to you very soon.
Best regards for the month of October,
Barry Kirkham, Marco Elsy and all who make this magazine possible.
