A total of 18 visitors were recently at Chantry Middle School and Technology College in Morpeth to run workshops for students in all year groups at its annual careers fair.

They included personnel from the NHS, Northumbria Police and Northumberland Fire and Rescue Service. The latter showed groups of Year 7 pupils the items that are stored inside a fire engine.

Hewlett Packard, P&G and Lotus Fitness were among the businesses represented, other workshops were led by a personal trainer, mechanical engineer, tree surgeon and a worker in the offshore sector and Justin Lockwood, Sony Award-winning radio presenter on Heart North East, also came along to do a session.
