Geordie Communities

Geordie Communities – Going From Strength To Strength

geordielandbordersThe Geordie communities in the north east of England have had their fair share of problems over the years.

The closure of the coalmines and the demise of the north east’s fantastic ship building industry had a dramatic effect on the economy of the Geordie areas of Durham, Tyneside and  Northumberland.

When tough times arrive the Geordie people have always been able to show how resilient they can be and constantly prove that they can overcome any hurdles put in their way.

When jobs became hard to get, many Geordies decided to go and find work in different parts of the UK and in foreign climes. While many retrained for other types of work, managing to stabilise the local economy and keeping their own particular community alive.

As the famous Jarrow marchers once proved, when times get tough, Geordies have a famous history of acting in their communities common interest and despite all the pressures, still retain a strong sense of community no matter which part of the world they currently live in.
