2017 South Shields Fireworks Show

The 2017 South Shields Ocean Beach fireworks event staged on the south side of the river Tyne was brilliantly done & fortunately this year the background was illuminated by a very bright & massive full moon in a very clear north eastern sky.

The first of the 2 free shows was also viewed with the added background of the fantastically lit ocean beach pleasure park.

However, I don’t think I could have got any closer with a better view of the second part of the fantastic show without getting my feet wet 😂 #sandancer #southtyneside ..

The video below shows a small portion of the overall fantastic show #bestever .. well done to the geordie lads and lasses of South Tyneside council 🙂

Coats For Geordies Winter Appeal 2016

geordiegirlsnowBefore the 2016/2017 winter snow arrives with a vengeance we would like to remind all you Geordie Lads “n” Lasses of the need to protect yourselves from the extreme weather conditions despite ye warm blooded genes.

In the following youtube video Chris Connely makes an appeal for members of the public to donate to the Coats For Geordies Appeal.

 

Thank you for listening 😀

 

Please note: this is a nicely done and humorous Geordie parody and “of course” no such appeal exists 😛 –  however, coats and jackets can be donated to the numerous charity shops on nearly every High Street throughout Geordieland (and of course in nearby Darlington).
