Olympic Torch Relay and Open Day

The Olympic torch passed through Bamburgh yesterday. The village turned out in force to welcome it. We had a scary scarecrow competition, a dog show and tug of war on the cricket green, plus bands from the schools kept the crowds entertained. Here are a few photographs from the day.

My favourite scary scarecrow from the day. Long live the Queen!
