Discover Boldon Colliery

Residents of South Tyneside are invited to discover the changing landscape around Boldon Colliery by taking part in a three-mile brass-rubbing walk.

The walk which starts at Boldon Community Centre Car Park, New Road, Boldon will take place on 24th April at 6.30pm.

The Mayor and Mayoress of South Tyneside Councillor Alan Kerr and his wife Pat, will launch the walk with the unveiling of the "Spheres Sculpture" created by local artist Jim Roberts.

The walk includes Colliery Wood where the Council has recently planted 50,000 trees and shrubs as part of the Great North Forest project.

Walkers will be encouraged to collect a brass rubbing from each of the 12 statues along the route. They will receive a free mug for their efforts at the end of the walk.

The event is ideal for all the family and is great way of exploring the developing Great North Forest in the Borough.

Anybody wanting more information can contact Andrew Watts at South Tyneside Council on 424 7423.
