Retired members virtual visit to Beamish Museum

We are delighted to invite our retired members to join us for a further virtual tour of Beamish the living museum of the North.

Beamish is an open air museum located at Beamish, near the Town of Stanley in County Durham, England.The museum’s guiding principle is to perserve an example of everyday life in urban & rural North East, England at the climax of Industrialisation in the early 20th century.

Event information

Our March meeting will see a tour of the 1900s Pit Village, showing a colliery community at the time of Peak Coal production in the North East.

Garage, cars, motorcycles and bikes and cycle works, which are a replica of a typical early 1900s garage.

Co-op Store, grocery, drapery and hardware departments, which was moved from Annfield Plain in County Durham.

Town see how families lived and worked in the years leading up to the First World War.

Pit Village, the Francis Street cottages came to Beamish from Hetton-le-Hole, on Wearside, and were orginally built in the early 1860s by Hetton Coal Company. Six of the original row of 27 homes were moved to the museum in 1976 and rebuilt in the Pit Village.

Whilst this event is predominatly for retired members, if other members wish to attend then you are very welcome to come along.

Tour to cover Pit Village, showing a colliery community.

Speaker

Simon Woolley, Head of Learning at Beamish, The Living Museum of the North.

Teesside Joint Supper 2021

Join our Teesside Pan Professional Supper Networking Event

A fantastic opportunity to network with professional service contacts throughout Teesside.

Last year’s event attracted more than 100 attendees from the region.

Teesside’s favourite chocolate bars

For 2021, in place of the regular quiz, we will be establishing Teesside’s favourite chocolate bar through a series of knockout ties judged by you the attendees.

Let’s introduce the contenders: (click for more details)

  1. Cadbury’s Dairy Milk
  2. Galaxy bar
  3. Snickers
  4. Cadbury’s Fruit and Nut
  5. Kit Kat (4 fingers)
  6. Terry’s Chocolate Orange
  7. Wispa
  8. Crunchie
  9. Bounty
  10. Dairy Milk Caramel
  11. Mars bar
  12. Twix
  13. Milky Way
  14. Double Decker
  15. Cadbury’s Flake
  16. Curly Whirly

Tonight we will find the answer to the age-long question: What is Teesside’s favourite chocolate bar?

The result will be determined by 4 rounds of discussions by break-out groups.  Attendees will be split across 8 groups – akin to being at a table for our face-to-face Joint Suppers.

There are 16 bars to be discussed (see above and here).

Each group has to consider two bars and establish which one they think is better than the other.  The discussion will end after 7 minutes; groups will get a notification 60 seconds before the groups are closed.  In each breakout group the facilitator/host has a casting vote in the event of a tie within the group.  Each group’s spokesperson will then feed back to the whole audience.

The groups are mixed up for the next round – half the members move on to a new breakout room to enhance everyone’s networking experience during the evening.

The successful 8 bars are then allocated: two bars to two groups.  The groups again discuss and decide who is the winner but must also note the voting of the group’s members.  Again, feedback after discussion closes and if there is a split decision (1 group votes for each bar) then we refer to the individual votes within the two groups.

That gives us semi-finalist 4 bars which are allocated two bars to four groups.  Repeat as above…

That gives us the finalists and all groups consider the merits of the final two bars.  Same feedback process to produce a winner.

Feedback should be no more than 1 minute per group please.

Coffee Morning (virtual) for retired members

Join with other retired members for a catch up with coffee or tea (biscuits optional).

Event information

Calling all retired members! Whether you are long retired, newly retired or are simply edging towards retirement, you (and your partner) are welcome to join our President Keith Proudfoot for a virtual coffee morning.

During these unprecedented* times, whilst only a few of us can expand our domestic contacts with a “bubble”, it’s all the more important that we stay connected with as many of our circles of acquaintances as we can.

So whilst we’re all stuck indoors and you’ve done as much painting and gardening as you can – or more than you want – why not grab your favourite cuppa and settle down to join fellow retired members for a coffee morning with no raffle but plenty of catch up chat.

* (an over-used word since March)
