Pirate adventure has a clear porpoise

A pirate invasion and swashbuckling adventures are planned for Newbiggin next month.

A series of three pirate quests will take place at 11am, 1pm and 3pm on Monday, May 6, when leaders of ORCA will run the sessions on the beach or in Newbiggin Maritime Centre, if the weather is bad.

Children aged five to 11 can sign up for the ‘Legendary Lost Porpoise’ event which aims to promote an interest in dolphins, porpoise and whales.

Numbers on each quest are limited with registration for the free event now open.

Anyone who wants to take part can register at the Maritime Centre during opening hours.
