Wingates won the tug of war at Simonside Country Fair.

The event, which takes place at the Gate Pub at Forestburngate, was opened by the Rothbury Highland Pipe Band and saw crafts, baking and making, alongside home grown produce, on show.

There were birds of prey, children’s games, international egg-throwing, a fell race, fair rides, a traditional Punch and Judy show and Kirkleyhall Zoo and Archaeosoup to name but a few.
