Concert in aid of supporting church funds

A SPECIAL concert is being held this weekend to raise money for an Ashington church.

The Friends of Woodhorn, who are seeking ways to ensure a sustainable future for Woodhorn Church, have organised the concert on Saturday featuring music by young musicians from Newbiggin and Ashington.

Will Rogers, chairman of the group, said: “It is a great opportunity to be able to give these young people a platform to perform and we hope that this will be only one of many events where creativity and talent can be celebrated in such a lovely setting.”

The church will also be open between 1pm and 4pm on Sunday to coincide with the Festival of British Archaeology.
