Welcome to the Christleton Blog. This is the best place to check what is happening as I tend to mention here any new items or features to the website as and when they happen and give a link to where you will find them. But I would encourage you to click around the site and explore. You are currently in the main part and you will find links to two other main sections. The Christleton War Voices which has an immense amount of information about Christleton in World War I. The other is Christleton 3 which is rich in photographs and includes two regular monthly features. Wildlife Watch and The History File. Enjoy.

Les George OBE

A charismatic and much respected man

A fitting tribute by David Cummings and Phil Hodges to Les George OBE. I urge you to read this edition of The History File for October, 2018. I never met him but first saw him at the Christleton Village Fete in 2000 held in the orchard of the Law College. After that I became aware of how much he was loved and admired. I always find it sad to learn so much about a person that I did know after they have died. It is often the earlier part of their lives that you are not aware of so I am sure that this tribute will particularly interest those who just knew him as the Headteacher of the Secondary Modern School which opened in Christleton in 1958.

Education Education Christleton Education

This year brings the 60th Anniversary of the opening of Christleton High School. An event which David Cummings marks with a series concerning the history of education in the village of Christleton. The first part of this interesting insight starts in the August edition of The History File. Read it, learn it, as there may be questions later.

Puffins on the Farne Islands

A special place for sea Birds

David Cummings and his wife Beryl have made a visit to what I consider to be a relatively undiscovered and magical area of the British Isles - The Northumbrian Coast. A place with wonderful castles, fishing villages, amazing scenery, vast beaches, sea birds, a young heroin and an early saint. Their visit to the Farne Islands is recorded in the August edition of Wildlife Watch. Read and enjoy.
