Deft designers have been urged to put pen to paper to help promote a film premiere.

The Voices of Stobhill project has captured the community on camera to showcase the history of the area, its current issues and aspirations for the future.

The DVD, which features exclusively local people, is set to be released this autumn when it will be sold by schools as a fund-raiser.

And in preparation for the launch, the Stobhill Community Forum has set up a poster competition to promote the premiere.

County councillor for the area Ian Lindley said: “Everybody has worked together on this. There are some really good and thought-provoking performances from our residents. From my sneak preview, we have a DVD to be proud of – now what we need is a really good poster to promote it.

“As a teaser, I can say that the launch event will have a magic Harry Potter theme, there will be a surprise guest appearance and a major prize to be won, donated by the Duchess of Northumberland, amongst others. A poster to promote all of this is what we need.”

Entry forms are available from venues throughout Stobhill, including the Community Link shop, Stobhill Community Centre, St Aidan’s Church Hall and Stobhill Children’s Centre, as well as from Stobhillgate, Collingwood and Morpeth First schools. Isos Housing also has forms at its offices in Morpeth.

The closing date for entries is Tuesday, September 30, and the premiere of the DVD will be at Stobhillgate First School in November.
