What’s on in this region of the blue rinse brigade?
A stash of bright pamphlets inside the parade, that are perfectly placed between you and the trade, passing by through the glass as you scan the arcade.
The Winter Fair tempts you with Christmas and art, the County Zoo gives you cats eyes on their card, the Hedgeley Antique Centre, sells you surprises, while somewhere I’m sure, will give kids useless prizes.
A pig and a seal stare back at your face, while the Beamish museum is centrally placed, there’s fine art, old castles and colourful walks, celebrations of colour and informative talks.
It seems that these things are all cleverly chosen, for old folk to visit and end their day frozen, all euthanised slowly with smiles on their faces, for having the chance to discover these places.
