Tynedale: Pets are on parade...
Published at 07:36, Wednesday, 25 September 2013
WE’RE looking for the district’s top dog in our annual Pet Parade – one of the Hexham Courant’s most popular features.
Tomorrow we’re hosting a photographic session at Haltwhistle Methodist Church Hall, from 2pm, for owners to get their pets’ pictures taken by one of our professional photographers.
Those pictures will appear in the Courant and readers can vote, by text or post, for Tynedale’s top dog.
A fee is payable. For more infor-mation see page 6.

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.
