Lighthouse group appealing for new friends

I THINK everyone would agree that St Mary’s Lighthouse is an icon on the north east coast.

The borough lighthouse is much photographed and countless paintings have been produced.

However, St Mary’s Lighthouse is feeling lonely and needs more friends.

The Friends of the Lighthouse would like more people to join them in providing extra care and attention.

The Friends group was established 15 years ago and since then has raised more than £30,000.

This money has been spent on such things as the garden, picnic tables, exhibitions and an access ramp to make access easier for baby buggies and wheelchairs.

We are seeking to attract lots of new members who, using their creativity and personal skills, will continue to generate new initiatives for the future.

If you are interested in getting more information, call at the lighthouse for a coffee and a chat on November 10 or 11 from 10.30am to 12.30pm on both days.

A warm and friendly welcome is assured.
