The event, organised by Ponteland Town Council and the Lions Club, was free but generous donations on the night saw £400 raised for the ex-servicemen’
Coun Peter Cowey, Mayor of Ponteland, said: “Paul Mooney couldn’t have forecast better weather for us – it was a lovely balmy evening. I’d like to thank Paul and all our performers for putting on such a great programme of entertainment.
“We were delighted to see so many people of all ages enjoying a fantastic community event, and very grateful for the generous donations to Help for Heroes. Special thanks should also go to volunteers who helped in the building of the marquee and stage and then dismantled it after the show.”
Music in the Park is one of a number of new community events launched as part of the Town Council’s vision of giving residents a real sense of pride in Ponteland.
