What Our Members Say

‘We are new to the area and this is a great way to meet people and find out more about where we live.’

‘The N&N is a wonderful Society! It is both trying to address the task of preserving the best in Northumberland and Tyneside, but enjoying itself as well, with great talks and visits about our great North-East heritage.’

‘A Society which promotes and celebrates the diversity of our rural and urban environments, while actively influencing developments in our region, to preserve our heritage but acknowledging the need for change and controlled progress.’

‘Enjoyable events…. Very good food…. Very Sociable People!’

‘A range of varied events so there is something to interest most people – anyone who cares about the history, architecture or environment of the region.’

‘A group of people who have the best interests of the future of Northumberland and Newcastle at heart, and who wish to protect and encourage the environment in our part of Britain.’

‘We enjoy the variety of venues and topics. We’ve visited many new places and met lots of new people.’

‘A Society whose interests are related to Newcastle and the county of Northumberland. Topics for events are very varied and interesting, they are also a source of what is happening in the area relating to roads, traffic, buildings etc. They keep an eye out for any bones of contention.’

‘A meeting of like-minded people – the N&N has a wide and varied programme of events, talks and visits to places not usual open to visitors – A Society I recommend to anyone interested in local history and current events alike.’

‘The N&N is a mixture of things – part local history, part conservation of buildings and landscapes, but also actively engages on current developments that affect our environment in its broadest sense. The talks and visits programme is fantastic.
