The event was held with the kind permission of Sylvia Armstrong, who decided to raise funds for the charity Bell View in Belford.

It was a chance for visitors to view the vast collection of a bygone age that has been lovingly built up over the years.

Alongside a brilliant raffle, some delicious home baking, refreshments and produce for sale, there were some informative demonstrations about how people managed and cooked in the 1940s.

In total a magnificent £1,100 was raised, and sincere thanks should go to all helpers, Sylvia Armstrong, her husband, daughters, grandchildren, friends and neighbours.

A great day was had by all, with monies raised going a long way towards providing the vital services that Bell View delivers for older people living in North Northumberland.
