Neville Turner to discuss four legged friends at Bowes Village Hall
FOUR legged friends are the topic of an illustrated talk by a retired vet this month.
Neville Turner will appear at Bowes Village Hall on Friday, November 15, taking a light-hearted look at the animals he treated during his 35-year career in the rural North Pennines.
Cows, sheep, goats, pigs, horses, cats and dogs will feature in the presentation.
Mr Turner, who always carried a camera with him, has a library of more than 40,000 photographs which featured in his book Hill Farmer, and Saatchi and Saatchi used his images of red grouse to advertise the Famous Grouse Scotch whisky.
Rosie Bettison, from the village, who has helped to organise the event to raise money for next year’s Bowes Carnival, said: “Neville estimates that he travelled a million miles over his 35-year career as a veterinary surgeon in the hills of the North Pennines.
“His working life gave him an intimate knowledge of the landscape, a heightened passion for its natural history and a friendship with many of the farmers who husband this gem of English countryside.
“He has presented numerous illustrated lectures about Teesdale and the North Pennines on cruise ships all over the globe.”
Doors open at 7pm and the entertainment starts at 7.30pm.
Entry is £5 and £4 for concessions. To book, call Rosie or Mike Bettison 01833-628343.
