Come on Down 2009

Day Three.

Today we were joined by Tynedale Centre from Hexham, Collingwood School from Morpeth, Riverside Centre, Blyth and Seven Stars, Everyone spent the morning taking part in drawing activities lead by James Johnson Perkins, then in the afternoon we saw films from Tynedale and Seven Stars followed by a game of ‘blindfolded “Where is the reindeers nose?”. The three day festival was brought to a close with a fantastic performance by Ronnie from Tynedale as Elvis Presley. A great time was had by all.

Thanks to everyone who took part and supported Headway in this event, see you all next year.
