On a sunny afternoon on the 14th July last year, Harper and her family had a picnic on the banks of our beautiful River Tyne, down by Felling Industrial Estate.

Harper wondered what would happen if they wrote a message in a bottle. Her family willingly obliged and the message was sent…

Then, on Sunday, Harper’s mum received an email from Germany!


The two families are now in contact through emails and Facebook. What a lovely story and thank you for sharing it with us!
