During the opening day, a record number of Harley-Davidson bikes thundered in for the annual Help for Heroes charity ride.

A fund-raising ceilidh in aid of HospiceCare North Northumberland was also held. Supported by the Simply Northumbrian band and various local businesses, it collected over £400.

Mel Corn, marketing promotions officer, said: “There was a great selection of food and craft stalls. The sunny weather meant that shoppers could browse the stalls, choose a bite to eat and drink Pimm’s while listening to live music.”
