This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Tyne and Wear Metro, the largest in the UK after The Tube in London. Our Metro is much more than just a means of getting from A to B, it’s all about People and Places!
Over the past 40 years Metro has carried millions of people all across the North East, not just to get to work, but to visit friends, have a night out in Town or even to the Airport for a family holiday!
We’d love to hear about your memories of the past 40 years, and how the Metro has left its impression on you. Nexus have teamed up with The North Shields Heritology Project to host a Memory Cafe to capture your Metro Memories and other tales of what life was like living and working in North Shields.
We will both have some memorabilia on show as well as representatives from Accenture on hand who will demonstrate some of their Virtual Reality technology.
Why not pop along for a cup of tea/coffee and share some memories with us.
We will be at St Columba’s Church, 30 Northumberland Square, North Shields, NE30 1PW from 2pm until 7pm on Wednesday 19th February.
