Bad weather in the South hits Consett

by Owen Temple on 2 March, 2016

I couldn’t resist writing this headline, because it seems so unlikely, but the official opening of Consett’s New Leisure Centre and Academy was delayed by three hours when HRH The Duke of Gloucester’s helicopter was unable to set out to the North East this morning.

After the initial disappointment – probably as keenly felt by the parent who I met helicopter-spotting at 9.50 as any – the event passed off smoothly. As well as hearing from HRH the Duke himself, it was good to see Sadie Walton being presented to the Duke in recognition of her decades of service to Swimming in the town.
