A warm welcome in Westoe

No. 5, Westoe Village, South Shields, is displaying a warm Christmas welcome to it’s visitors with a clourful wreath hanging above the brass knocker on it’s front entrance. The knocker bears a clue – it’s the Sir William Fox Hotel.

William Fox was born here and went on to become the second Prime Minister of New Zealand and served in that post a total of four times.
