Music in the Park is run as part of the Town Council’s vision of giving residents a real sense of pride in Ponteland.   Ponteland Town Mayor Councillor Carl Rawlings said: “It was a very happy family day which went very well. I heard one of the local residents say on the way out ‘what a nice way to spend a lovely Sunday afternoon’. P-80
