Hi and welcome,

I'm Ian, a Level 5 #LocalGuide and I've created this community as part of the http://www.google.com/local/guides initiative. Sign up and you'll earn some great rewards for contributing quality feedback to the Local Guides programme.

Community volunteers needed

If you're a local and would like to share your knowledge of your area for the benefit of others there is a great voluntary community ran by Google called Local Guides. All you have to do is give balanced reviews on Google Maps to places you visit along with optional pictures and in return you earn points which unlock goodies as a way of saying thank you.

If you're based in Durham and would like to become a moderator for the respective community and run it to raise awareness of the group then please leave a comment and I'll get in touch. My main focus is NewcastleGatshead Local Guides but I'm keen on helping promote neighbouring places.

If you love swans then head down to Riverside park, Chester Le Street in County Durham and you be able to see around 100. You can buy swan food at the main cafe.

Love the decor and ambiance in this restaurant and most of the staff are Italian and are very friendly. Tomato garlic bread for starters was yummy and ham and mushroom pizza for my main course was great. The crust was very thin and there was lots of topping. There is a free salad bar that you can help yourself to while you're waiting for your food to be cooked.
