Supporting Newcastle Castle Throughout The Pandemic

At Pentagon Computer Solutions we take great pride in supporting the local community, especially during these unprecedented times. That’s why we recently carried out some voluntary work at Newcastle Castle.

Located in the heart of the city, Newcastle Castle is a medieval fort that was built in 1080. Like many attractions this year they have felt the effects of the pandemic and with the introduction of the tier systems it meant they have been unable to re-open.
We have been proud to work with this prestigious North East landmark in the past and have created a fantastic working relationship with Chief Executive Officer Ben Smith

To offer our support the Pentagon team visited and carried out PAT Testing ensuring all equipment was checked and safe ready for when they can open their gates again.

We headed to The Castle Keep and Black Gate to carry out the testing and as the building is Grade 1 listed, we made sure to plan in advance to ensure any work being carried out would not cause any disruption to the castle’s structure.
During our visit we were lucky enough to participate in a photoshoot outlining the process which will be used in the Castle’s newsletter.

With the uncertainty of 2020 we wanted to offer our support in any way we can. Although Newcastle Castle may not be currently open, they still have an online gift shop which is perfect for finding a unique Christmas gift. You can learn more here:
