Listen Up Jesmond! Your Stories

During the Jesmond Community Festival, JesmondLocal invited Jesmond locals to a “hack day”, where our reporters listened to the stories of their lives.

We present to you here the stories of 15 local people – their stories of love, loss, family and fighting against big government.

To hear their stories, in their own words, simply hover over the hotspots on our interactive graphic… and press play.
