    1. Thank ED sorry for the delay, better late than never (but still in time for November) and I’ve made a post of it for your troubles 🙂

  1. Hello,
    My mum (mam) and dad originally come from South Shields and although not a geordie myself have been around the geordie language all my life. I have a small business with my wife ,we handmake a variety of crafts and recently added the Geordie NETTY sign .We sell these on our website madeulook.co.uk, but we can supply direct to your gift section with a 20% discount on every one sold .We can also make personalised Geordie signs,thank you very much for your time ,Brian.

  2. I am contacting you with a story that I think you may be interested in covering. I have recently written a song together with my bass player Deon Krishnan. The song is called ‘Sunset on the Tyne’ and is available now on download and all proceeds go to Prostate Cancer UK.

    I can send you a copy of the song along with the press release but in short there is quite a lot about the story that I think may be of interest to your viewers/readers. I am running in the Great North Run for this charity (for the first time CRIKEY!!!) and the song is about the GNR, family and the love of the Northeast.. Along with my band it features Peter Tickell on fiddle (he plays with Sting) and Andrew….on the Northumbrian Pipes (quite a nice story outlined in the press release about the Pipes).

    So it is very much a Geordie song and we would love to think it will become a Geordie Anthem for the run.

    Any coverage you could give us would be greatly appreciated.

    I look forward to hearing from you

    Kind regards,
    Anna

    Where can I find the post about Apple introducing a new range of products for the people of Newcastle: the why iPod, the why iPad and the why iphone! It was brilliant and funny and I should have saved the link; just can’t find it again.
    I love Geordieland and my family have lived here for generations.
