The Tyneside Forum has been set up by a group of local "Geordies" from Gateshead and Newcastle to give the people of the Tyneside conurbation a free unbiased platform for people to shout their voices from.
The new forum (http://www.tynesideforum.co.uk) has a facility for leaving comments and messages for fellow Tynesiders, also known as Geordies. Bobby Broon, an eccentric character from Gateshead explains "What we wanted was a simple idea which would give people of Tyneside to come together and let each other know what's going on in their particular area" Bobby continues "Whether it be information about a local charity event or some local news, to their view about what's good and bad on Tyneside"
What makes the Tyneside Forum different is that it's a non-profit organisation and the guys running are doing so purely for a hobby. Bobby Broon says, "Tyneside is one of the largest conurbations in Europe, and is an unique area of the UK" Bobby smiles "People in Tyneside are particularly proud to be from the North-East and are infamous for being friendly. Except at a Newcastle Sunderland derby game," he laughs. "Look, it doesn't matter how big or small the news is for the Tyneside Forum, whether it's some breaking cutting edge stuff, or just the fact to ask if anyone's seen your car keys that were lost in the park!"
The Tyneside Forum will be carefully monitored of course. Bobby Says " Bullying and Racism or any libellous comments would not be tolerated, nor indeed any unsuitable material" he continues," It is a forum for the whole of Tyneside to be involved with both young and old" The younger users can educate the older users on what is going on the world of Tyneside youth and the more mature users can bring lots of benefits to the forum. Information about Tyneside's recent past, how it used to be, uploading old photographs and giving their views on how Tyneside can keep being great.
Tyneside is an area with lots happening and in recent years the UK people in a national telephone vote chose Newcastle Gateshead to be "The peoples Capital of Culture". Steeped in history with plenty going on in terms of sport, leisure, shopping, business, and last but not least nightlife, there is plenty to shout about. Newcastle was also voted the eighth best party city in the world by American travel experts Weissman Travel and it was the only British which made it onto the list.
