PRIDE in Tynedale

I had a fantastic few hours at Hexham Race Course last Friday afternoon celebrating the work of those who have made a solid contribution to Tynedale.

More than 100 guests attended the lunchtime event, organised by the Hexham Courant, in partnership with SCA Prudhoe Mill.

Humshaugh Community Ventures (of Humshaugh Village Shop fame) collected the top award at a ceremony held at Hexham Racecourse. I know the team very well and it was well deserved.

The tourism award went to Tamsin Beevor, from Hexham Community Partnership - who does fantastic work for the town. The retail award was won by Wheelbirks Farm, near Stocksfield. And the young business award was picked up by Rachel Lawson, owner of 'What a Clip', in Prudhoe.

Well Done to everyone!
