'Our fundamental purpose remains unchanged since 1829: to study and protect nature. The history of NHSN contributes a significant legacy and contribution to UK natural history and as the nature conservation sector grows and evolves, we must adapt our purpose to be relevant to the present day and the future.'  In 1851 'beginning a tradition that continues until the present day, NHSN launches a new series of public lectures to make natural history accessible to Newcastle’s working class'.

'Our Association covers approximately a 20 mile radius from Newcastle into North and South Tyneside, Gateshead and the southern and eastern ends of Northumberland ... We have a year round meeting schedule with talks, beekeeping demonstrations and practical apiary training sessions during the summer months. Our members come of all ages and walks of life, with new members always especially welcome.'

Inaugurated as a Society in its own right in 1944: 'Meetings are held ... on the first and third Tuesdays of each Month, September through May Inclusive at 6.45pm (auctions start at 6.30pm). Meetings finish by 9.00pm'.

'North East Humanists is a registered charity ... consisting of over 200 members, making it the largest regional Humanist group in the United Kingdom. We are involved in a wide range of activities including working with school teachers to deliver lessons about Humanism in the RE curriculum, providing pastoral support in local hospitals and prisons, hosting events where invited speakers talk about a wide variety of topics, and numerous social events for members ... We continually invite distinguished speakers to come and give talks about the latest ethical, social, and scientific issues. These are generally held the third Thursday of the month.'

'Knowledge about designed environments can often get separated into disconnected professions with specialised languages and habits. In contrast, our School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape both addresses our professions and works beyond them. Our internationally renowned experts pursue methods ranging across the social sciences, humanities, engineering, creative practice, and biotechnology to achieve the latest insights. And our teaching aims to equip students to lead the professions and vocations they'll retire from. We work across Europe and the globe, inspired by our place in north-east England.'

'We are the country’s oldest provincial antiquarian society. In the two centuries since we were founded in 1813, we have encouraged a deeper understanding of the history and archaeology of North East England ... We normally have a full programme of lectures, walks and visits, and social events.'
