Christmas for children

editorial image

Christmas was just as exciting 50 years ago as it is today, as these pictures show.

Taken from our archives the top image show youngsters at the then Alnwick North Infants School enjoying Christmas dinner, while the bottom picture shows youngsters at a Christmas party in Embleton’s Creighton Hall, organised by the Embleton Children’s Tea Committee.
