This is our invitation to the people of ‘Geordie land’ … could you create a Local Heroes Exhibition, celebrating all that makes being a Geordie special to you, your family and your community? We have done this in Coalville, North West Leicestershire and our testimonials page, our YouTube channel leads us to think it is something very impactful to those that help create it and those that visit it… don’t see us as experts, we are ‘sharers’ we will bring our story to you, share it and then with you help create a Geordie version.
We have visited in April, May and June and are coming up in July to share our THINK! sessions with the Princes Trust and to deliver the last few cutouts. Everyone should have theirs by then and all will be busy preparing for the exhibition.
