Not long to go until the County Show

A reminder that the Northumberland County Show takes place this Bank Holiday Monday (28thMay). From 9am-6pm Bywell Hall will be packed full of fun for all ages, including cattle, horses, sheep and dogs, along with street food, art exhibitors, soft play and tractors. One of the highlights of the year in Northumberland, the County Show is always a great day. You can find out more about this year’s show, as well as how you can buy your E-ticket in advance online to beat the queues on the day, here-

Ovingham's Premier League Primary Stars

I would like to wish the best of luck to the Under 11 girls football team from Ovingham Middle School who are competing in the Premier League Primary Stars Football Tournament at Leicester City’s King Power Stadium today. The team qualified to represent Newcastle United and will now get to enjoy the full Premier League experience, arriving in team coaches, using the team dressing rooms and playing on the pitch, officiated by Premier League referees. 

The tournament is part of the Premier League Primary Stars programme, which offers schools free online resources to support learning across Maths, English, PE and PSHE, using the Premier League and football to inspire children to learn. There are now 15,000 schools signed up to the programme and schools can register for free here-

Good luck to the Ovingham Middle team- it sounds like it will be a very exciting day!

Work under way- 2018 Jobs Fair coming soon

After the incredible success of last year's event, work is well under way in preparation for my 2018 Jobs Fair. I recently visited the JobCentre to meet with Chris Howard to discuss plans for this year's event, which will take place later this year. It already promises to be even bigger and better than last year- I look forward to telling you more details about the event nearer the time.
