COUNTY residents have the opportunity to go on a guided tour of religious buildings near Belsay on Sunday.

They can join staff at Bolam Lake Country Park on a three-mile walk to the Ratanagiri Buddhist Monastery at Harnham over rough ground and then look around the monastery with its monks.

The walk starts at 2pm. Those taking part are advised to wear suitable footwear and take waterproofs.

Earlier in the day at Bolam Lake, people can join Amanda Barrel for an introduction to the ancient art of Tai Chi.

The event will run from 11am to 12.30pm and there is a charge to attend of £3.50.

For more information about both activities telephone Frances Povey on 01661 881234.
