WATCH: Snow in Warkworth

There was a surprise appearance of the white stuff last night during Warkworth’s Christmas lights switch-on celebrations.

In true festive spirit, there were flurries of fake snow as Santa and his reindeer arrived – with a bit of help from Amble and Warkworth Rotary and Inner Wheel clubs.

The Gazette’s Jane Coltman was on hand to capture the action which included carol singing from Warkworth Village Choir, an address by Rev Mike Dent and flag waving to switch the lights on by Coun Jeff Watson and Margaret Burrell who was born in the village and has lived there for the last 92 years.
