A little bit about Dorothy:

I'm a member of Kirknewton Village Hall Trust Committee with a particular interest in the history and culture of the area. This resulted in a book called 'Children of the Outbye' published in 2007. This book is a social history of rural Northumberland from circa 1800 as revealed in the history of Kirknewton School. With additional notes on Southernknowe school, also within Kirknewton Parish.
