Picnic in the park

A RANGE of musical treats will liven up your picnic in Ponteland Park as a popular annual event returns.

Hosted by BBC weatherman Paul Mooney, Music in the Park will include performances by Sonia Michelle, Dunston Silver Band and Ponteland Community Band.

The Ponteland Town Council event will take place on Saturday, July 2, from 6pm to 9pm.

Entry is free, but donations are requested for Help for Heroes.

In the event of poor weather, it will be held in Ponteland Memorial Hall.
