Mrs Enid Dewhurst, who will be 100 years old this Saturday, judged the Belford First School chalk pavement art competition on Tuesday, writes Steve Newman.

Unfortunately it rained so hard that the competition had to be brought indoors from the village High Street to the school hall.

Apart from the prize-winners each child received a soft drink and a small chocolate bar courtesy of Belford Newsagents. The event was organised by Shirley Mckie from the village.

“We always use do have pavement art competition during carnival week, “she said “And I thought I would bring it back as a bit of fun for the children and we hope to run it annually now.”

Members of the village Facebook group ‘Belford Village’ should look out on the site as the event will still go ahead for the children during the summer when the weather settles down.
