People in Bedlington got together to keep alive the spirit of the old community picnic.

The town has a long tradition of events on the picnic field in Attlee Park but, with no events planned there for this year, the community got together to organise the Bedlington Picnic.

With the support of West Bedlington Town Council, the picnic was held yesterday, celebrating everything the town has to offer.

Community groups, organisations, businesses and individuals joined forces for a day of fun, with entertainment, stalls, games, food, music and a dog show.
