Walk will mark church centenary

AS part of its centenary celebrations a Whitley Bay church is holding a walk around the parish boundary this weekend.

Parishioners at St Mary’s Church in Claremont Gardens will undertake the beating of the bounds on Sunday.

The walk starts at the church at 11.45am and will head to St Mary’s Island for a picnic lunch.

The walkers will then go round the golf course towards the waggonway and head south to Monkseaton Metro station before heading down to the seafront and along the Links.

All are welcome to join in.
