Experts will be on hand to value antiques and art at a vintage event next weekend.

Auctioneers Anderson and Garland will be on hand at the Vintage Rothbury event in Rothbury on Sunday, June 29.

Six experts will be based in Rothbury’s Jubilee Hall from 11am to 4pm.

Julian Thomson specialises in silver, jewellery and watches; Fred Wyrley-Birch is interested in seeing stamps, silver, jewellery and watches; John Anderson’s specialism is pictures and books; Rod Meek will look at weapons, militaria, fishing tackle and collectors items; David Strain and managing director, Andrew McCoull, will value any china, glass, clocks, furniture or postcards that are brought in.

The service will help to raise money for the Stephen Carey Fund. The valuations - £5 for a single item, £10 for up to three items and young people’s items valued for just £1 – will be the core activity on the day.

Rothbury will step back in time at the event with a vintage tea shop, market, window displays, treasure hunt and display of vintage military and agricultural vehicles alongside other attractions.

Andrew McCoull, said: “A number of us live in Northumberland and know of the Stephen Carey Fund, which has the extremely worthwhile aim of making the area safe. This coupled with the drive of the Rothbury WI team made our involvement an easy decision indeed and we’re now very much looking forward to the day.”
