May Pet of the Month

31 May 2017

Meet Margo, long term resident at Benton Dog & Cat Shelter 

Margo is a gorgeous Staffordshire bull terrier cross approximately six years old. This lovely lady is rather shy and quiet at first but once she is comfortable Margo is very fun and loving. She listens well and is very good on her lead, making her a brilliant companion to be with outdoors. Margo is a big people person and loves attention and company of us humans.

Visit www.dogandcatshelter.com for more information about adopting animals from the shelter.

The Northumberland 100

02 Sep 2017

Take part in the Northumberland 100 - a 100km bike ride starting and finishing at Quorum in partnership with Bike4Health.

The ride is designed to be low cost and easy to train for - we wanted to create an event that anyone can do but is still challenging and rewarding.

The route will take in lots of lovely Northumberland Coast line along with a sneaky hill or two but will mostly be flat. In the run up to the event we'll be offering free training rides and bike services. We'll also be hosting a free BBQ at the finish line!

Taking place on Saturday 2nd September – timings to be confirmed.

Its £10 to enter with entry costs covering ride guides and our BBQ and drinks afterwards.

 

Sign up today for a challenge to work towards this summertime.
