Have your say

The medieval village of Elsdon has revived its Town Crier to summon visitors to its fete on Bank Holiday Monday, August 25.

Resident Dr David Coles, a researcher at Newcastle University, is ringing the bell for traditional events as well as a host of new attractions, with a fun dog show the major new boost.

The event will raise funds for community facilities and St Cuthbert’s Church.

The fete will run from noon to 4pm with music and refreshments through the day and into the evening.
