Weatherman brings sunshine for Ponteland music

HUNDREDS of Ponteland families enjoyed a sunny evening of entertainment as a new community event was finally able to take place.
After a total washout forced the cancellation of last year's inaugural Music in the Park, Look North weatherman Paul Mooney brought the sunshine as he compered on Saturday night.

An estimated 300 people came along to watch performances by singer Sonia Michelle, the Dunston Silver Band and Ponteland's Community Band and Community Choir at the event organised by the Town Council.

Ponteland Mayor Robin Ramsay said: "It was a lovely evening and we were delighted to see so many people of all ages enjoying a fantastic community event.

"I'd like to thank Paul Mooney and all our performers for providing superb entertainment."

Music in the Park is one of a number of new community events launched as part of Ponteland Town Council's vision of giving residents a real sense of pride in where they live.
