Christmas has arrived at more villages in north Northumberland, as the festive lights are switched on.
Warkworth’s Christmas lights were switched on by Coun Jeff Watson and vicar Margaret Horbrough to the delight of a huge crowd.
Coun Watson thanked all those who had helped, including Warkworth Parish Council, who funded the lights; Amble and Warkworth Rotary Club, who took along Santa and his sleigh; and Topsy Turvey, who supplied the elves, mince pies and wine.
He said: “Warkworth’s simple white lights and magnificent tree, along with the floodlighting of the castle and medieval bridge, have proved a big hit with residents and visitors alike.”
In Rothbury, All Saints Church was packed for the big switch-on.
Outside, a brass band accompanied the carol singing and Rothbury Highland Pipe Band also entertained the crowds.
Lewis Stephens, 11, from Glanton, a pupil at Dr Thomlionson C of E Middle School in Rothbury, had the honour of switching on the lights.
Bamburgh’s lights were also switched on last weekend.
