Newbiggin's Four Legged Supporters
Members of the Bedlington Terrier North East group and their terriers were welcomed at a recent visit to Newbiggin lifeboat station.
The famous Bedlington Terrier is the focus of this group who are based in Northumberland but have a membership across the region and beyond. Their visit to Newbiggin enables the terrier owners and others to get together for a formalised walk with over 60 of this unique breed enjoying the fresh sea air.
Peter Arris Chair of the group said: 'This is our first walk of the 2019 and we are pleased to visit Newbiggin by the Sea along with supporting our local RNLI lifeboat station. We will be doing further walks during the year and as part of that will be raising money for local charities.'
