RESIDENTS county-wide are being urged to vote for a Morpeth school’s entry in the final of a national film competition.

The footage of King Edward VI School pupils bridging the gap between young people and the town’s elderly residents has been put forward by judges as one of the best 36 documentaries from across the UK.

Prizes will be awarded in a number of categories and the production is available to view online so the public can choose their favourite.

The 10-minute film, which was produced by Teesside University students after KEVI successfully applied to BT for a £1,000 grant, includes coverage of the school’s War Memorial re-dedication service and a major 1940s event in the town hall. It also features an interview with the Duchess of Northumberland.
