    Good Morning Jeff

    I await eagerly to see the fantastic photos and paintings of old Shotley Bridge.

    Thinking about it often as the area is always in my mind back here in Australia, reminiscing of when we visited last Sept walking around the village talking to people and admiring the beauty of the village.

    You all work together to make a beautiful community in which to live.

    I cast my mind back to when my grandmother lived in the girls Training School Springfield House there and wonder what her life was like then.

    Kind Regards
