It has been supported by donations from the likes of Amble Town Council and The Rotary Club of Amble and Warkworth and there are three more free taster sessions remaining of a five-week trial.

If the initiative is successful, the sessions will continue. Coun Dargue said the game was enjoyable and urged people to try it. For details, call Josh on 07714 862292.
