It is hosting a coffee morning on Saturday, December 10, in the Glendale Hall, Wooler, in aid of its annual Children’s Countryside Day. A highlight of the event will be the launch of the society’s shopping bags, which were designed by William Leech, from Northumberland Church of England Academy.

Schools were invited to design a bag showing historic farming on one side and modern day farming on the other. Their designs were judged by Stewart and Sarah Nelson and the winning design has been printed on to the bags, which will be on sale at the event.

The coffee morning, with home-baking, a raffle and tombola, opens at 10am with proceeds going to the countryside day in June.
