The New Ford Scout Camp NOW OPEN

We are delighted to hear the announcement from the North Northumberland District Scout Council that Ford Scout Camp with its new purpose built Davison Activity Centre is now open and operational.  Go to to have a look at the facilities and for information on booking etc.

A full complement of 20 people Early Birders gathered this year at Slainsfield near Etal for the annual Dawn Chorus outing of the North Northumberland Bird Club, on Saturday 4th May.  It was one of the largest parties in recent years.

After the appalling cold wet weather, and with springtime development some 2-3 weeks later than usual, it was no surprise that bird activity was reduced. But the sun was shining and the overnight gale had ceased.

TillVAS Exhibition Centre

Sadly the temporary exhibiton centre which has been open through the summer in the old Bakery building, opposite the entrance to Heatherslaw Mill , is now closed for the winter.  Developed by the Till Valley Archaeological Society (TillVAS) the extensive exhibition, 'Life in a Border Village 1830-1930' included maps, photographs and some artefacts, with a focus on the local villages of Crookham and Branxton.  The centre, which was manned by members of TillVAS, reported a very successful season and hopes to return with another exhibition next year.
