A charitable organisation based in south east Northumberland has enjoyed success once again in an annual quoits championship.

The north east District of Rotary International held it’s annual Quoits championship at Bowburn Hall in Durham on Wednesday, June 24, where the Blyth team were victorious.

The challenge, which has been running continuously for over 30 years, is organised by the Rotary Club of Houghton-le-Spring, and sees teams compete in specially prepared pits in the gardens of the Bowburn Hall Hotel.

Four teams from the Rotary Club of Blyth entered the competition, and the Blyth team of Colin Baxter and Tony Platten retained the trophy from last year’s win.
