Chris puts the focus on One Summer’s Day

The hot weather meant Roughtin Linn wasn't running with its usual force when Chris Hill and the Strolls and Poles Nordic walking group visited on Saturday.

Boats, dogs and smiley faces in the sand – just some of the pictures readers sent in for our One Summer’s Day competition.

We asked for photos which reflected your day of fun in the sun on Saturday, with the winner picking up four oven-ready meals from Turnbull’s of Alnwick butchers.

This was our favourite snap, from Chris Hill, of Lesbury.

It shows members of the Strolls and Poles Nordic walking group visiting Roughtin Linn where, because of the hot weather, the water wasn’t running at its usual force.

Chris now goes forward to represent the Gazette against our sister titles across the Johnston Press group in the search to find a national winner.
