At Craster Community Trust, we have maintained our Saturday morning coffee browse-ins for residents and visitors.

At these, we continue to offer second-hand books, CDs and videos as well as coffee, tea and biscuits.

We held a successful bingo evening. The work of re-roofing the hall should be complete by mid-month. Work had to be delayed till September to avoid disturbing bats that have been roosting in the eaves.

We are pleased to report that we have been able to re-open the playpark after Playdale repaired or replaced equipment RoSPA had warned us as being in need of attention.

A new keep fit programme has begun in the hall every Wednesday evening from 7pm to 8pm, £3.50 per session. Contact Pip Charlton on 07900 846617 for more information.

Other activities have resumed following the hall’s refurbishment – the Art Club and Craster Women’s Institute.

The Craster History Group has a meeting on October 21 when Dr Ian Roberts will give a talk on Droving – The Livestock Trade in Northumberland.

On Friday, October 4, Angus & Ross Theatre Company will present Holmes & Watson – The Farewell Tour with Julian Finnigan and Dominic Goodwin. This is a production subsidised by the Highlights rural touring scheme.

The audience will be invited to admire the skills of the great detective, marvel at the beauty of the Satsuma Stone and thrill at the deadly struggle at the Reichenbach Falls.

Tickets cost £7.50 for adults, £6.50 concessions, £4 children, £18 family.
