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 feature inviting proud parents and grandparents to share their new baby pictures with our readers, both in the newspaper and online - at a time when families can not be together as they usually would.

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

Keep the heart warming images coming!
