Redesdale Show

Managed to spend an hour at the Upper Redesdale Show in the midst of a full day. Everyone seemed to be having a good time, especially the children in the races. Couldn't stay to see the (adult?) wheelbarrow race, which was a pity. The photo is of some of the entries in the carved walking stick competition. Which would you choose for first prize?

St Cuthbert Walk

Saturday 5th September was blessed with perfect weather for walking. Seven of us set off from St Cuthbert's Elsdon. The aim was to walk across country to St Cuthbert's Corsenside for lunch, then on to St Cuthbert's, Bellingham. I managed the seven miles to Corsenside I was certainly ready for lunch. Next year maybe the whole fifteen miles! At certain spots we stopped and Susan, the Team Rector, told a story from St Cuthbert's own travels through this part of the world. We heard how Cuthbert's needs were provided by his horse, an eagle and two sea otters.
