Volunteers involved in a community skiff-building project are holding an event this weekend to give people the chance to learn more about the scheme.

Craster Coastal Rowing Club is behind the initiative and work to construct the vessel has started.

The group is holding a special general meeting on Saturday for the local community to find out about the scheme and for those interested in becoming members of the club.

The event begins at 12.30pm in Craster Memorial Hall and will be followed by a guided walk to the former Methodist chapel which has been loaned to the club for the duration of the build.

There is also set to be a presentation to thank the donors who have contributed towards the project to make it happen.
