The Coquet Shorebase Trust in Amble has been given a £5,500 grant from Banks Community Fund to buy six stand-up paddleboards.

The group, which is based at The Braid, has bought four one-person boards and two 17ft ones which take up to eight adults at a time.

They will be available to hire on the lake at Druridge Bay County Park.

Vic Brown, manager at the Trust, said: “We are extremely grateful to Banks for the donation. Having these paddleboards means that we are able to offer something else to people – both people from the club and also the community as a whole.

“We have called the group paddleboards Moby-Dick and Jaws, because they are both very large and very white.”
