THE Churches Together Procession of Witness will start from St Wilfrid’s at 10am today. The procession will pause at the Methodist Church for readings and a hymn before concluding on the Market Square, where a cross will be erected.
After this, hot drinks and hot cross buns will be served in Holy Cross. Everyone is welcome! Don’t forget to decorate the cross with flowers on Easter Sunday morning as a sign of the resurrection of Christ and the new life which is available to all people.
Haltwhistle Bowling Club is holding a coffee morning in the club pavilion tomorrow, from 9.30am until 11.30am, and all are welcome.
The bowling green opens for the season on Saturday, April 13, and anyone interested in trying the game can go along to the green any time after that, and they will be made welcome.
The best time to attend is Tuesday nights at 6pm when it is jumbles night and anyone can join in.
The club offers one month’s trial without commitment. If you need more information, telephone (01434) 320165.
WELL done to pupils at Haltwhistle Upper School who raised £760.80 for Red Nose Day! The many and varied events that took place at morning break were instigated by the pupils through the pupil forum and pupils also came in non-uniform, wearing something red, and had a choice of different activities for two lessons.
Teachers were impressed by the support and enthusiasm of the pupils and agreed ‘there was a brilliant, positive attitude from all of the pupils’.
Haltwhistle Community Campus would also like to thank the families and parents who have once again supported the school in their fundraising events for charity.
THE Easter Fayre at Haltwhistle Methodist Church is on Wednesday, April 3, from 2.30pm to support the district women’s president’s project.
The project this year is Thembilihle Home, a children’s refuge in South Africa.
THE clocks spring forward in the early hours of Sunday, March 31! How do we know it is spring? Not because of the weather, but because of the Tourist Information shop opening in the library!
Don’t forget to adjust your clocks and hope that the weather vastly improves on the last few weeks.

THREE watercolour paintings donated by Queen Mary were auctioned off to raise money for a new Darby and Joan club in Hexham.
A site had already been bought, but a further £6,000 was needed to run the club for the elderly.
The auction, opened by Viscountess Allendale, saw the paintings raise over £8 for the fund.
