….the fifth of November, gunpowder, treason and plot.

I know of no reason why gunpowder, treason should ever be forgot.


Probably like the majority of you, I spent last night celebrating Guy Fawkes around a bonfire and watching the spectacular fireworks. A few of us headed along the coast to an organised display in Tynemouth and it was lovely to see so many families spending time together armed with sparklers.

This year we’ve had the added bonus of it being on a Saturday so we took the opportunity to follow up the night standing wrapped up in the cold with a meal at a restaurant on the quayside at North Shields before heading off home with a few more happy memories.
