Time For George comes to Haltwhistle


The Time For George visitor centre is now open in Haltwhistle with children’s author Diana Bell fulfilling a lifelong dream. She is from a family very closely connected with the watch and clock industry for many years as her father ran the S G Ellis stores across the North of England. Since her father died 21 years ago at the relatively young age of 65 Diana has turned her hand to writing children’s books which have grown in popularity over the years.

The Time For George visitor centre contains an array of watches and clocks with very different mechanics and themes. There is no doubt that the art of watch and clock repairs has fallen by the wayside over the last few years and indeed there are now very few specialists in this particular field. The ability to bring together children’s books in the name of Time For George and the watch and clock centre is something of a dream come true for Diana who is helped by her father’s grandchildren Jayne, Deborah, Hannah and James.

This is just one of many new and exciting ventures across the North of England and in particular in Northumberland. It is not only quickly becoming a hive of tourist attractions and tourist businesses but there are many budding entrepreneurs in the region. It is hoped that the Time For George visitor centre will attract both adults and children and add to the ever growing mix of businesses and services in the region.

If you have a venture or a new idea which you feel would benefit the Haltwhistle area then please drop us a line and we would be more than happy to discuss promoting your venture on our website.
