A time of reflection fell upon Ponteland on Friday 8th May 2015

Music, singing and stories of yester-year were order of the day on the 70th anniversary of Victory in Europe (VE) Day within a special service held at St Mary’s Church, Ponteland.


Year 8 from Richard Coates Middle School,

sang and played instruments for our veterans and the public and a fitting service was orchestrated by Rev Peter Barham.

Our beacon was lit in the evening, as were many others across the country representing the flame of peace and the end of the war.


Business’s in the village took part, decorating their shop fronts.
