The Charity Quiz Evening 2020 arranged for Saturday 28 March 2020 has been CANCELLED.
Fireworks fun at Ingram Village
Following the failure of the Gunpowder Plot in 1605, King James I introduced the ‘Observance of 5th November Act’, an enforced annual public day of thanksgiving. Despite being repealed in 1859, the celebration has continued with enthusiasm throughout the UK. So last night – exactly 414 years after the failed plot – Ingram Village celebrated in its own community-centred style at Ingram Village Hall.
WELL DONE to everyone on the Powburn Show Comnmittee and to all the other people behind the scenes who have worked so hard over the past year to make create a Powburn Show 2019 success!
The weather was great, the people were fun, the food was delicious, the crafts were so skilful, the…well, the list goes on!
VERY WELL DONE once again to the Powburn Show Committee for organising and delivering an amazing Powburn Show 2018 success!!
There’s a gallery of images from the day on the official Powburn Show website. However, here are some more to bring back memories of what a great day it was (or, if you didn’t manage to get to the Show…what you missed):
The Happy Cats
A drop of the Irish, a spoonful of Country, a splash of Cajun and a twist of folk…
Northumbrian Evening 2016 – what a great night!
It’s been over three years since we’ve enjoyed a Northumbrian Evening at Breamish Hall. So, it was a pleasure to have Ernie Coe and friends back in Powburn for an evening of Music and Mirth. Oh…and a pie and pea supper! What’s not to like, eh?
Well done again!
Another big CONGRATULATIONS is due to all the members of the Powburn Show Committee who worked to make this year’s Powburn Show as successful as 2015.
Once again, the sun shone and people of all ages from near and far came along to enjoy the many delights of the annual Powburn Show held on Saturday 6 August 2016.
Here are a few images of the day…
Summer School Fete success
To celebrate the opening of Branton Community Primary School in September 2016, the Summer Fete held on Saturday 25 June 2016 was a great success!
Running and counting…what fun!
With fun and free children’s activities, including a treasure hunt, pony rides, football practice, naming a sheep…and more…there were happy, smiling children and adults everywhere. Despite an early threat of rain, the weather held out and the sun also smiled on proceedings.
The Happy Cats
A drop of the Irish, a spoonful of Country, a splash of Cajun and a twist of folk returned to Powburn last Saturday night (25 June 2016) in the form of The Happy Cats, almost two years after their last sell-out performance at Breamish Hall.
And last weekend’s gig was no exception. The multi-talented line-up of Marty Craggs (lead vocals, saxophone, harmonica, flute, tin whistle, tambourine, bodhran), Les Dodd (guitar, vocals) and Lenny Brown (accordion, vocals) got the crowd buzzing with electrifying performances from start to finish. By the end of a terrific evening of Celtic sounds, mixed with Geordie and Irish folk, underpinned by stirring rock and roll rhythms, the crowd were on their feet with grins as wide as…well…a happy cat! Just outstanding!
Hedgeley Women’s Institute
Hedgeley WI celebrated the Queen’s 90th Birthday by organising a Tea in the Garden, planned for Saturday 23 April 2016. As it happened, the weather was poor on Saturday so the venue was changed to the Breamish Hall.
Several members of the local community came together to celebrate.
There was plenty of good home-made food available, including sandwiches, cakes, biscuits and Pimm’s.
