Walking weekend

RAMBLERS will put themselves to the test with an all-day walk this weekend.

Morpeth Footpaths Society is embarking on a 12-mile trek from Haltwhistle to Haydon Bridge.

The route, which will be led by Ian and Michael Bell, is fairly level and shorter options will be available.

Participants are advised to take a picnic lunch and anyone wishing to join the group for the outing must book a place in advance.

A coach will leave from Morpeth Riverside Leisure Centre on Sunday at 9.30am prompt. A £6 charge is payable on the day.

For more information or to book a place contact Mieke Pickard on 01670 514615.
