THOSE going along to this year’s Houghton Feast were given plenty of food for thought after the event traditional ox roast was laid on.
Among the first to enjoy a beef encounter with what it had to offer was Sunderland mayor Bob heron, also a town councillor for Hetton and a member of the feast steering committee.
Lots more fun is on offer over the course of the 10-day festival, launched last Friday. It is due to wind up on Sunday.
