Community alive and well in town

COMMUNITY is alive and well in Whitley Bay.

This is how the activities team of St Andrew’s Church in Monkseaton have felt through the generosity of local estate agent Keith Pattinson, who kindly allowed the church the use of an empty shop in Park View for the month of July with the team creating ‘Granny’s Attic’.

It has been an amazing journey for everyone – a retail experience, receiving and selling good quality goods, valued customers finding that special item, making many new friends along the way and welcoming returning customers from previous years.

We thank all our customers, and we raised more than £5,000 for church funds.

This money will be used to keep the church and its facilities running smoothly for the wide range of groups who use the accommodation on Eastfield Avenue.
