The Sage at Gateshead



Welcome to AOUG in the North (09)

Welcome | News | Diary Dates

May I express a warm welcome to all AOUG members, both old and new, to Associate members, and all those of you just viewing this page purely out of an interest in the OU. We live in interesting times and as with everything we must always strive to move forward to better times. I understand that it is important to use modern technology to communicate and therefore, with this in mind, the future is here and now.

I hope that new members will be able to find the opportunity to join in some of the activities that are planned; read the Diary Date Page to find out the latest dates and times and then please contact me about a week before just to confirm your attendance. I constantly try to make visits both interesting and entertaining but cannot always accommodate everyone as tastes differ. It is useful when members have some general ideas about more exciting venues and all your ideas will be appreciated.

Currently, we are moving ahead again into the Degree Ceremony phase for our Region and as your Executive Representative, I will be processing at the Sage in Gateshead, along with Violet Rook, one of our previous Executive Representatives. This occasion is the highlight of the season and so exciting to be chosen. I look forward to meeting new AOUG members.
