Welcome to August and the school holidays have begun! There is plenty going on in our lovely corner of the country.  The country shows are kicking off this month with Powburn to start and many more to follow. Music festivals are popping up throughout Northumberland.  Alnwick Music Festival returns this year with a change of location to Alnwick Gardens, but still with some familiar faces and our favourite Rhythm Stix!! It’s time again for scarecrows to take over Rennington Village for a fantastic family fun weekend. The Alnwick Castle and Gardens have plenty on to keep the whole family entertained. Check out our What’s On section for more details on local events. If you are holding a local event in the future please tell us about it at This section is free of charge and we love to hear to what’s happening out and about and so do our readers.


Unfortunately, it’s not holidays for all of us! We’ve been very busy at Cryer Corner and would like to welcome some new advertisers who I’m sure will be working hard all summer too. From further afield, we welcome Garolla Blinds and Get Rid Removals. Keeping it local – we welcome Ground Property Services, Alnwick Roofing and Simply Flowers. We wish you all the best, may your adverts keep you busy!


For anyone who missed the notice in last month’s magazine, we have now officially moved into our brand-new offices. After our very own Richard getting down on his hands and knees to do the carpets and the amazing work done by David Daley,  we are all settled in and very proud of our new home.


For more info on our new home or new advertisers please check out our web page or look for us on facebook. Have great summer!!
