Dutch lions visit region

Lions from Holland have visited a county club in the latest in a series of biennial visits between the two clubs.

Morpeth Lions hosted the part of eight from the Heemskerk and Castricum Lions Club of Holland.

First stop for the visitors was Beamish Museum, where they enjoyed the music of a band parading and playing in the main street and town park, visited the old village, and learnt about coal mining.

In the evening they joined more Morpeth Lions for a meal and a quiz with a difference as the questions had either/or answers but both answers were correct.

The next day it was off the Tynemouth to visit the market in the Metro station and have lunch on the seafront, before the return trip to Holland.
