Over 50s can get some top tips on making a bit of spare cash, thanks to Northumberland’s Golden Guide. The free annual guide has the lowdown on local activities, as well as how to get help with health, money, care or home problems.

Newly-updated, this year’s guide also features the Moneymaker Issue, which takes a lighthearted look at money and how to make a bit more of it in your spare time.

Editor Heather Alabaster said: “We came up with the Moneymaker Issue to entertain, as well as offer practical ways to increase your income and make it stretch a bit further. How about selling your holiday snaps, or renting your home as a film location? There are simple ideas and some unusual ones, but they’re all achievable with little or no outlay.”
