Campaigners fighting proposals to bring open cast mining to Druridge Bay are extending the closing date of their photographic competition.

The Save Druridge Photo competition has been extended to allow holidaymakers and locals to take advantage of the six weeks summer holidays.

Organiser Lynne Tate has already received a constant stream of photographs but due to popular request, the closing date has been extended to cater for the long summer days while the children are off school.

Organisers are encouraging snappers to send in images that highlight the diversity of the natural environment, show people enjoying the beach and ‘Beach Life’ activities.

The photos must be taken in the area between Druridge Pools and Cresswell Village along the coast and inland as far as Widdrington Village and the A1068 Coast Road.

There are three age categories, under 11, 12 to 18 and over 18, and photos must be submitted to by Monday, August 31.
