Northumberland Member of Parliament and Ex-Miner, Ian Lavery, joined hundreds of local residents this weekend to mark the annual Northumberland Miners’ Picnic.

The picnic has been a tradition for hundreds of years in the county, celebrating the history and heritage of the Mining communities and their influence on the local area.

Mr Lavery, himself an ex-miner in Northumberland said; “It’s always an honour to attend the Miners’ Picnic and its more important than ever to keep celebrating and sharing our heritage and our history with the next generation who will be responsible for preserving these memories and traditions.”
