The Parish Council has entered Northumbria in Bloom the last 2 years having taken a break for some year. The Parish Council would like to encourage residents to participate in decisions about this competitions. We would like to set up a Residents committee to help organize planting etc. Are you interested – if so please contact the clerk. If you have experience of gardening please get in touch. We would very much like to improve on our Bronze Award for 2017.
The Parish Council has agreed to fund replacement of several benches in the village, removed by the County Council. It is anticipated the order will be placed in May 2013 and installation completed ready for the Summer weather.
We are sorry to announce the resignation Mr. Dave Toulmin as Clerk to the Council with immediate effect. We wish him well for the future. Interviews for the new Parish Clerk will take place after the Spring AGM (16th May 2013).
Our Parish Website was originally launched on 17 January 2011, it has since been updated and all minutes and agenda are available for the public to see. If you have any problems accessing the information please contact the clerk to the Parish Council. We are continuously adding information but if you have any suggestion please contact the clerk.
