Cllr John Woodman, chairman of the AONB Partnership, said: “This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in the Northumberland coast to come together and contribute towards the work of the AONB Partnership.

“We will be telling people about the current work of the Partnership and some exciting new projects for the future.”

Lunch as well as mid-morning and afternoon refreshments will be provided. Places cost £10 to cover costs and are limited, so registration is essential.
