A RIDING centre in Morpeth showcased its range of activities at a special event last Friday.

Visitors to the Pegasus Centre in Tranwell were able to meet some of the ponies and enjoy a pony ride during its open day.

They could also see the other things that are available at the facility. The special guest was Val Tyler, policy board member for community infrastructure and culture.

The centre is home to the Morpeth Group of the Riding for the Disabled Association and provides opportunities for hundreds of disabled children and adults.

Manager Martin Peagam said: “It was a very successful event that was enjoyed by everyone who came along.

“Thanks to the support of our partners and supporters, such as Blyth Valley Arts and Leisure and Raven River Dog Agility, we are able to offer more than riding activities and this was an opportunity to show off everything available at the Pegasus Centre.”

He added that the afternoon also provided a great opportunity for people thinking about volunteering to meet some of the volunteers and see how they can get involved with helping the charity.
