What a fabulous day to be in Belford on Sunday 24th April to enjoy it's Classic Car show. There was a tremendous turn out with a wide variety of vehicles coming from near and far. The show is in its second year with many owners returning to show off their pride and joys.

There were three competition categories this year with the following vehicles being chosen by Mike Briant of the Northumbria Blood Bikes -
Best Classic Example : Malcom Stawart (The Morpeth Milkman) with his Bedford CA
Best Original Classic: Judith Rachel McClaren with her Volvo P1800
Best Overall: Steve Handley with his Mark 1 Ford Capri 3000E

The main object of the day was to raise some money for Northumbria Blood Bikes and The Great North Air Ambulance, so it's great news that on the day £600.00 was raised!

Schools concert a success

On Friday 1st April 60 children and 20 adults arrived in Belford from Kent to join with the orchestra of St. Mary's C of E middle school to put on 'A Feast of Music for Easter' and what a feast it was.The pupils from St. Fidelis Primary school in Kent had brought a full band of steel pans, a choir and instruments ranging from French horns to cellos.

This special joining together of two church schools from opposite ends of the country resulted in a night of friendship, fellowship and a wealth of musical talent. The St. Mary's orchestra was augmented by past pupils who came along to play their instruments.
