  13. An up-and-coming star is set to be a roaring success when he takes to the stage in Northumberland this January. When Morpeth Pantomime Society launches its annual show on January 25, audiences are in for an extra-big surprise: a T-Rex has joined the cast and is about to make a debut - with a bit of snarling and tail-swishing - in The New Adventures of Alice. The dinosaur has been awarded a special role in the society’s latest pantomime, its 39th, which will have four performances in the market town. And it certainly will prove a new adventure for Alice as the fresh take on the tale of storybook heroine who falls down a rabbit hole will sees the animatronic star, called Tyrone, share the limelight with the likes of Alice, The White Rabbit and the Mad March Hare. The high-tech dinosaur was made in China especially for the society which came up with the ambitious idea last autumn. Committee member Ben Gammer said it was all part and parcel of plans to grow audiences for the shows following a period about five years ago when numbers took a dip.

The event to mark Holocaust Memorial Day is open to all and will take place on 25th January at 1pm in the Council Chamber at County Hall, Morpeth. The theme for this years Holocaust Memorial Day is ‘the power of words’ and the impact and difference words can make, both for good and evil, which will be explored through music, film, readings and testimonies. The event will begin with the lighting of the Holocaust memorial candle and will conclude with the rising of the Holocaust flag and a blessing from Rabbi Lipsey. The ceremony will be hosted by the Northumberland Youth Cabinet and Parliament and will feature a film from Sele First School and a talk from the Young Equality Stars from Prudhoe Highfield Middle School. Veronica Jones, Northumberland County Council cabinet member for Adult Well Being and Health, said: “It is important that we continue to remember these shocking moments in history and all those that have lost their lives through unjust hatred and persecution. “It is through remembering these events that we can learn from them and they serve as a continuous reminder that more needs to be done to recognise prejudice and raise awareness about how to stop it.”

  26. Northumberland County Council has unveiled plans to spend £17million on refurbishing its outdated headquarters. County Hall in Morpeth , which was built in 1981, is set to have its interior updated to give it a new lease of life. And once the work is complete, an entire wing of the building is to be rented out in the hope of generating income for the council. The proposed redevelopment has been included in the local authority’s medium term financial plan, but it has not yet been approved by full council. The Conservatives, who pledged to stay at County Hall after a dramatic win in last May’s elections, said it was a great deal for taxpayers. A spokesman said: “We’re investing to refit a building which is internally dated but structurally sound after years of neglect from the old Labour council.
