Ponteland Observed - an afterword

Thank you to everybody who has commented on my posts on the history of the Ponteland Observer newspaper. "Almost certainly more interesting throughout than the actual paper" is a compliment it would be false modesty not to share! The journalism news site Hold the Front Page has a very positive write-up with a useful list of links to each instalment. Ponteland Local History Society have also been helpful and I hope to attend their Jubilee exhibition, which will include a section on Ponteland in Print, at the start of next month. I'd welcome further feedback on the paper and on the history of weekly newspapers in north-east England more generally.
