THIS morning, Riding Mill Churches Together invite you to take part in their Walk of Witness at 10.30am.
The walk starts at the Methodist Church in Broomhaugh and ends at the Foyer Café, in the main hall, where tea, coffee and hot cross buns will be served.
THE Northumbria Healers are back in the parish hall tomorrow. The Healing Centre is open to the public from 2pm until 4pm for natural and gentle care.
For further information visit their website www.northumbriahealers.co.uk or simply pop along – you are guaranteed a warm welcome and will hopefully leave feeling comforted, supported and uplifted.
A REMINDER that the Mike Fry Foundation will be doing an open rehearsal of Harold Pinter’s Birthday Party tomorrow.
The foundation is a charity inspired by the spirit and work of Mike Fry, a former teacher of Haydon Bridge High School.
The main body of the group comprises past pupils, who were inspired and influenced by him, and who want to keep his memory alive by providing the same opportunities for other young people in the area.
The cast would welcome the opportunity to perform in front of an audience. Doors open at 7.15pm, with curtain up at 7.30pm. Everyone welcome.
THE Women’s Institute will meet on Thursday, April 4, at 7.30pm, when the guest speakers will be Tom and Joe from Wylam who will talk about container planting.
Bring a photograph of a flower or plant to enter the competition. Your hostesses for the evening will be Wendy Amies and Lyn Squires.
IN addition to Easter, there are two more occasions to celebrate in the village this week, as the parish hall is the chosen venue for two wedding receptions on Thursday and Saturday.
We wish both our happy couples a very special day and that the love and warmth emanating from our hall will be with you forever. We hope you are blessed with good weather.
DREAMING of hot, sunny days, gentlemen of Riding Mill – your village needs you!

This week in... 1949Friday, December 9, 1949...
A workman was buried alive while digging a drain in the Prudhoe Urban Council's housing estate at Oaklands.
Workmates rushed to the aid of 50-year-old Richard Barclay, of Stocksfield, when the wall of the trench he was digging collapsed.
They managed to dig his head and shoulders free before finally pulling him from the earth. He was found to be suffering from shock and bruising.
