CULTURE: The brave new world?

Great to see La Riviera opening, another highly individual venue, as part of Cullercoats’ new café culture.

The village in recent years has created a special atmosphere all of its own.

Hang on though – isn’t Whitley Bay entering a brave new world too? Ah yes, there on the seafront is a brand new – erm – Premier Inn and – gulp – a Beefeater, plus the eternal seafront closures.

Ah well.
