Our Volunteers’ Thoughts…

“The more I spend time here the more I love the place.”

“I became a guide just as a welcomer but now I am interested to learn the history and to become a guide. For me it’s been like joining a University of the Third Age.”

“I am not a churchgoer myself, but I see this place as somewhere special in the North-East.”

“I came to this merely through my interest in local history.”

“It is a nice and welcoming place especially now that we have Bede’s Bakehouse cafĂ©!”
