The organisers of the first Northumberland Day are urging all residents to get involved and take up the baton of celebration planning.

Langley Castle Hotel and Restaurant, which first put out the call for a Northumberland Day in July 2015, and Catapult PR, which devised the concept, have together staged the first ideas workshop for those wishing to get involved.

This took place at the birthplace of Northumberland Day – Langley Castle – last month.

A second workshop was held in north Northumberland this week, while another is already in the diary for Wednesday, March 15, at Headway Arts in Blyth.

Activities for Northumberland Day itself, which will take place on Sunday, May 28, and the days around it are already being planned.

Anyone wanting to attend the ideas session in Blyth can email Jane Hunt at NDay@cata pultpr.co.uk, call 0191 6531121 or 01253 891114.
