A number of Morpeth teenagers have each received an accolade for successfully completing an outdoor project or course.
Mayor Nic Best presented John Muir Awards to 18 King Edward VI School students at a celebration evening in the Town Hall.
Shaun Hackett, from Northumberland National Park, who delivered a Naturalists course to some of these pupils, said: “They were a great group to work with and showed lots of enthusiasm in the various topics.
