THE Tyne Valley was well represented among the winners of this year’s Northumbies Awards, with two prizes coming back to the district.

The awards, which were presented at Langley Castle earlier this month, celebrate the contribution of individuals, businesses, community players and schools to the second Northumberland Day, which took place in May.

Of the seven awards up for grabs, Allendale Primary School and The Angel of Corbridge won their respective categories.

Headteacher at Allendale Primary Allison Hawkins said: “I’m very proud of the children and grateful to the award organisers.”
