Guiding the way

THE first Ponteland Civic Society meeting of 2012 will take place on Monday.

Guest speaker Grace McCombie will give a talk entitled Newcastle and Gateshead – writing the Pevsner City Guide, which will examine the way the Pevsner buildings series began after the war.

This will include showing some of the buildings researched for the book.

The event is being held in St Mary’s Church Hall, Thornhill Road, from 7.30pm. Non-members are welcome at a nominal charge.
