Gateshead Council like to make an effort. To celebrate the New Year, they arranged a number of events in Saltwell Park (and elsewhere, but as the park is at the end of my street, that’s the only bit I took any notice of). It was very cold, and a vicious lazy wind was blowing, so not all the events could go ahead – the trapeeze artist declined to perform in the middle of the pyrotechnics . However, the rather odd “Fire Garden” did happen. Even though it was horribly cold, I’m glad I went, and got these pictures.
 That’s the kind that’s too lazy to go around you, so goes straight through you instead…..
