Update by Sarah Jayne Vickers

Good morning all, time for a quick update as its been some time since my last one.

We have been in liaising with The Gateshead Cheder School, and we are in the process of agreeing dates where we can visit the school to engaged with the students.

We will give the students an overview of what it is were doing at Sunderland road, a site walk around and also deliver an activity building a paper dowel bridge. Hopefully this will inspire the students to consider a career in engineering!

Work had been progressing well, which hasn’t been without it complications! Up until the festive holidays we will be carrying out trail holes outside of Computer House. We break up for the holidays on the 21st December and will return in the New Year.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to us the 'contact us' button at the top of this page.
