Full steam ahead for railway summer fair

Aln Valley Railway is hosting a summer fair and market this weekend.

On Sunday, the line’s Lionheart station site in Alnwick will host stalls including ones selling craft items, sweets, jewellery, fancy goods, paintings, bric-a-brac and hand-made cards.

Some stalls will be raising money for charity.

The event is billed as being family-friendly and will offer activities for children such as face-painting and balloon animal-making, as well as a bouncy castle.

The event starts at 10.30am and will end at 4pm.

Diesel trains will also be out in force to provide rides for those going along.

The railway’s museum, shop and bric-a-brac stalls will all be open, and refreshments will be provided by its Buffet Stop Cafe.
