Volunteers are being sought to help maintain a historic structure on the north Northumberland coast.

As part of the Peregrini Lindisfarne Military Defence Project, organisers are looking for a team of volunteers to help thin the vegetation around Newtown Gun Emplacement, at Budle Bay.

This is part of a campaign to improve access and provide a 21st-century function for this historic structure.

People are invited to join the Peregrini Lindisfarne team on Tuesday, November 15, between 9.30am and 12.30pm. Tools and training will be provided, as well as tea and coffee.

Booking is essential. To find out more or to book your place, email Sarah.Winlow@northumberland.gov.uk or call 07557 326797.

Peregrini Lindisfarne aims to protect and enhance Holy Island and the surrounding areas.
