The history here in The Islington Archives resulted from an exhibition displayed in Islington shop fronts for two weeks from the 10th April 2015. The project was coordinated by the Islington Village Community Group with funding from Newcastle Council’s Make Your Place program.

We’d love to hear from other residents past and present with interesting facts and photos  about our history. It could be your house growing up, the general store on the corner of your street, or a community event in the park.

If you have photos or stories you’d be happy to share publicly on the blog, via Facebook and Twitter and in the print media, please email us at: islingtonvillagecg@hotmail.com or send an old-fashioned letter to: Islington Village Community Group, PO Box 123, Islington 2296. You can also add a comment to the history posts you see here. Happy history hunting!
