River Trip on the Tyne


This event was opened to all and about 30 people boarded the boat under a gloriously sunny evening.  The trip was up river to just beyond the Newburn Bridge.  A recorded commentary added interest to the trip.  Thanks to George Miller and Colin Lightley for the organisation of this event.

Quoits Competition with the Volunteers of the Blyth RNLI


Ten of the members of the Men’s Fellowship met at the Blyth RNLI to challenge the volunteers to a quoits match.  It was a beautiful late Spring evening and the fellowship, built on the first such meeting last year at Bedlington, was enjoyed by all. The evening was made complete by sharing pizza and chips in the staff room.  Thank you to the volunteers from the RNLI for a very enjoyable evening.  We promise not to gloat too much about the result!

Visit to Northumberland Fire Service Headquarters


The evening commenced with a school room presentation concerning fire safety in the home. The subject covered all imaginable risks that are commonly faced domestically and it led to a very lively question and answer session.  Following this we ventured into the main building where we were introduced to the vehicles and the equipment available to the fire men and women. We were given a very detailed demonstration of all the equipment available for all imaginable emergencies faced every day by the firefighters.

Men's Fellowship tour of St. James Park

Twenty-one members of the Men's Fellowship enjoyed an hour's guided tour of St. James Park.  This was a memorable occasion for all, perhaps especially for one Tottenham supporter amongst us!  (At least his club had some silverware to be displayed).  For the many season ticket holders amongst us it was an opportunity to visit parts of the complex not normally seen.  For others it was an eye opener to see the sheer magnitude of this fantastic stadium.  Our guide had a great sense of humour, some of which should not be reported here for fear of him being sued for slander!

This meeting the Fellowship took part in a walk round some of Newcastle's historic sites.  This was well prepared as usual by Jeff and as a number of comments were made, it is good to get out of the car and see some of the places you miss when driving in the City.  Unfortunately diminishing light prevented more photos from being taken.

The walk started at Grey's Monument  and took in a number of sites of historic interest including the place where Charles I was held prisoner, Plumber Tower and the site of the old Great Prison of Newcastle and Gateshead.  

The evening was planned to end with coffee at a well known coffee house.  Sadly it was closed the evening finished somewhat earlier than planned.  Nevertheless a very enjoyable time of fellowship.  Thanks go to Jeff for the hard work put in to make this evening a success.
