A MURAL representing Newbiggin’s heritage has been painted in the town.

As part of Gentoo and Bernicia Group’s home improvement partnership, they joined with charity Groundwork North East and a team of volunteers recently, to unveil a new look for the town’s seafront.

Artist James Mellon worked with volunteers from TDB Training in Ashington to paint the mural onto boards donated by Gentoo, using paints donated by Dulux Decorator Centres.

Project leader, Leanne Shipley, said: “The promenade is an important part of rejuvenating our town and we were really keen to bring some of Newbiggin’s history and future into the design.”
