Newbiggin Easter Fair Success
Newbiggin's Ladies Fundraising team had a successful Easter event in the boathouse today which raised almost £700.
The fair was staged to coincide with a number of other special local events including the annual kite festival which increased the weekend visitor numbers.
With the summer months coming up the Ladies are already making plans for their next fundraising venture.
