ASHINGTON Sea Cadets are hosting a summer fair this weekend to raise funds for the organisation.

The money will go towards repairs to the building to allow the group to continue to offer land and water-based activities to young people between the ages of ten and 18.

The cadets are a voluntary organisation which survives on money raised and grants.

The event on Sunday is on from 10am until 4pm, with a number of activities on offer.

The cadets will be putting on a boating display and the unit will be open to allow visitors to take a tour of the premises.

There will also be a climbing wall, refreshments, tombola, raffle, book stall, cake stall, face painting and much more.

Wansbeck Paddle Club will be offering kayaking taster sessions to those interested.

Signs directing visitors to Blackclose Bank in Ashington will be available on the day and parking is available.
