Ashington mayor Ely Turnbull proved to be a prize guy by handing out awards at an Easter event held by the town’s Alligator Klub, a group for adults with learning difficulties.

This fast-expanding group meets at Ashington Masonic Hall, in John Street, on a monthly basis.

Coun Turnbull has supported the group throughout his term of office, and this time round, he helped to choose the winners of an Easter bonnet competition and handed out many spot and raffle prizes, helped by Mary Lyle.

Organiser Pauline Thompson said she was extremely pleased with the amount of support provided by Coun Turnbull and was looking forward to seeing him at the group’s fifth birthday party in June.
