Here's the last news from the Reading Activists in Gateshead.
On Wednesday 21st August, members of Birtley's Reading Activists (a.k.a. "Our Say - Birtley") hosted a night of retro-gaming at Birtley Library, Gateshead.
On the night, over twenty teens turned up to enjoy the mini-arcade set up in the Junior Library before tucking into pizzas and snacks. In between tournaments of Guitar Hero and Mario games on the Wii, everyone took turns playing traditional board games; Twister, in particular, was a huge hit!
And the eight "Our Say" members are already planning their next event: a themed Doctor Who evening to tie in with the show's 50th anniversary celebrations in November. Watch this space for details...
