Planning for the Future
People gather to have their say on the future of Land of Oak & Iron. There were workshop sessions on the Legacy Group mapping project and opportunities to hear from the consultant appointed to develop the Land of Oak & Iron legacy and a focus on volunteering.
A musical performance over lunch heard two Land of Oak & Iron pieces, composed by students from Consett Academy and St. Thomas More Catholic School and performed on the day by Consett Academy.
The song described the passing of time through the people and landscapes that make up the Land of Oak & Iron, while the instrumental piece began in the calm tranquillity of the forest and ended with the rhythmical and percussive sounds inspired by the steel works.
