THE arrival of new children into the world is a joyous occasion and something that parents rightly want to shout about.

The Hexham Courant has launched a new feature inviting proud parents and grandparents to share their new baby pictures with our readers, both in the newspaper and online.

If you want to share pictures and stories of your new bundles of joy, get in touch by visiting the Hexham Courant website.

A selection of some of the newest arrivals from across Tynedale feature this week.

Keep the heart-warming images coming!
