Sunday Snapshot

This impressive arch in Hexham was presented to the town to commemorate members of the Fourth Northumberland Fusiliers in France and Belgium during World War I. The companies of Hexham, Bellingham, Haydon Bridge, Prudhoe, Corbridge, Haltwhistle and Newburn are remembered with this arch, which stands as a wonderful reminder to us all of their incredible service.

On your bike and get in gear! Tour of Britain comes to Northumberland

It's not long now until the Tour of Britain will return to the roads of Northumberland. Monday 4th September will see day 2 of the race pass some iconic landmarks including castles and the Kielder Dam. The race will start in Kielder Water and Forest Park and will pass through the Northumberland National Park, as well as many of Northumberland's towns and communities. You can watch the start of the race as the cyclists prepare to set off at Kielder Water and Forest Park at 10.15am on 4th September- it is fantastic to see the race return to Northumberland and I encourage everyone to go along and support some of the world's best cyclists as they cycle through Northumberland.
