THE third annual Northumberland Day is to take place this weekend.

This week, leading up to the event on Sunday, organisers have been taking the Northumberland Day flag out around the county for photo opportunities.

Haydon Bridge is one of the areas in the county which is going all out to celebrate the day, with an event at St Cuthbert’s Church yard between 2pm and 5pm. Organisers are planning to have traditional Northumbrian food as well as live music, children’s activities and stalls.

Other events include a walk to Holy Island and new food launches at A Taste of Northumbria in Alnwick.
