IT was all going on at Morpeth’s Stobhill Youth Club last week.

Community groups and local agencies came together to make the most of the glorious weather and provide a range of fun family activities.

The event, which took place on Thursday, was supported by Isos Housing, Positive Futures, Northumbria Police, Northumberland Fire and Rescue Service and Bad Apples North East, as well as members of the community.

Coaches from Newcastle United provided cage football for youngsters and there was also martial arts training and a bouncy castle, while residents could pick up information about local services from various stalls.

Garry Scurfield, of Isos Housing Group, said: “We are trying to get all the local partners involved, working together for the community.

“These are the people who sit around tables and discuss the local issues so it is nice for them to come together in partnership for the community and to provide something for the kids in the school holidays.”

The team also organised similar events in Lynemouth and Hadston.
