Upcoming Events

  • 22nd May - 22nd May 2024

    Creating a local soundscape

    Time: 1.30 - 3.30pm
    Location: Hauxley Nature reserve

    Northumberland Wildlife Trust is on a mission to create a local soundscape of two of its most popular nature reserves.
    Joining forces with the Later Life Audio and Radio Co-operative (LLARC), the Nextdoor Nature people and nature project, funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, is working to create a lasting record of life on its Hauxley and Northumberlandia reserves which will eventually be part of a new wildlife podcast series titled Nature Connect.
    Project officer Natasha Hemsley is calling on members of the public living near the two sites to join her this May for tea, cake and a chat about their connection to the site(s), their stories of wildlife encounters and what they’ve seen and how the landscape has changed over the years. All their reminiscences will be recorded and eventually uploaded onto the LLARC’s podcast site https://www.mixcloud.com/LLARC/
    Both sites were opencast sites before being transformed into nature reserves.
    Hauxley reserve was originally part of Radcliffe open-cast mine and purchased by Northumberland Wildlife Trust in 1983 before being transformed into the haven for wildlife it is today. The Hauxley session will be held on Wednesday 22 May between 1:30pm and 3:30pm.
    A place at the free event can be booked at www.nwt.org.uk/events or alternatively, members of the public can simply turn up and be pointed in the direction of Natasha walking round with her sound equipment.

  • 23rd May - 23rd May 2024

    Croquet club fun day

    Time: 8.00am - 8.00pm
    Location: Alnmouth Croquet Club near the cricket club ground.

    If I mentioned the game of croquet to you, it would probably conjure images of genteel Victorian ladies in long dresses engaged in an afternoon of polite play. It’s probably not something you would think of going on today, but croquet is played widely throughout the UK and there are several clubs in the north east.
    Croquet today is a great way of socializing, getting some gentle exercise and enjoying the outdoors. It’s a game that all ages can play and one of the few games that can be played equally by men and women, without advantage, and there is a club (almost) on your doorstep.
    Alnmouth Croquet Club is based at Alnmouth and Lesbury Cricket ground, with club days taking place on Tuesdays and Fridays from 11am. It is a small friendly club that caters for members who just want to have some fun and exercise, and those who want to get to grips with the game, improve and play competitively. So, if you want to give it a try the club are holding a fun day on Thursday 23 May, from 8am to 8pm. There will be a chance to try your hand at croquet for as little as £1 per game, participate in some fun activities and competitions and perhaps win a prize at the tombola. Club members will be on hand to offer advice and instruction to help you get to grips with this fun and intriguing game.
    All money raised by the club will be donated to Alnwick Food Bank. So, why not come and give it a go? Come just because you are intrigued or why not pack a picnic and make a day of it?
    There is plenty of parking close to the Cricket Club or the local buses pass the entrance on their way into Alnmouth. Come and join in the fun and raise some money for a good cause at the same time.

    Warkworth Memorial Hall concerts

    Time: 7.00pm
    Location: Warkworth Memorial Hall

    Friday 28th June, 2024 The Chet Set
    American trumpet player and vocalist Pete Tanton is joined by John Bradford (drums), Alan Law (piano), and Mick Shoulder (bass) to present an evening with the Chet Set: Jazz standards and anecdotes relating to the life and career of Chet Baker - “The Prince of Cool”.
    Chesney Henry “Chet” Baker Jr. (December 23, 1929 – May 13, 1988) was an American jazz trumpeter and vocalist perhaps best known for his rendition of “My Funny Valentine”. Movie star looks, soft singing voice and mellow trumpet earned him a worldwide following in the ‘50s, until dental problems and heroin addiction led to an itinerant lifestyle and relative obscurity. His fame was rekindled in the ‘80s with the release of the documentary “Let’s Get Lost” which charted Baker’s rise and fall. Jazz historian Dave Gelly described the promise of Baker‘s early career as “James Dean, Sinatra, and Bix, rolled into one”.
    Booking information and further details, along with the guest list for the rest of 2024, are available at www.wwmh.uk/concerts.html or contact Peter Burnham Tel: 01665 711388. Tickets for our concerts are limited and must be booked in advance.
