Platinum Jubilee – 20th November meeting

The Council have organised a meeting to co-ordinate a steering group. If you are interested in attending, please contact the clerk

 

 

Memorial Gardens

Covid Stone - A stone is to be placed in the Memorial Gardens with words to reflect the pandemic and all those who have been affected.

 

A seat was placed in the gardens in memory of Diana Robison BEM who died last year. The Council held a dedication for the family and members of the groups Diana was most involved with.

 

Comb Hill Play Area

 The Council have agreed contractors for the replacement of the wetpour on the bottom 3

play areas. A single black colour will be positioned to avoid shrinkage.

It is hoped that the paths will be attended too later in the year/next spring.

 

 

Burn Field Cycle Track

The Council have instructed a contractor to begin a refurbishment of the cycle track which will include siting a new path so cyclists can return back to the top without impinging on other cyclists, or walkers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

South Tyne Railway Preservation Society

The area by the railway is owned by STRPS and local volunteers have been tidying this area up and making a permissive walkway. The Council have set aside £1000 to contribute to this work which has helped in the making of some steps. The Council have also purchased a new bin and dog bag dispenser at the entrance on the metal bridge.

Anyone wishing to volunteer to help should contact STRPS, or the clerk, who will forward on your name.

 

Westlands Play Area

 

New equipment will be installed over the next weeks with the old climbing frame to be removed.

 

Saturday Surgery

 

The Council will resume their quarterly surgeries with 2 members in attendance. The first one is to be on 4th December 2021 at 10.00am. The venue is to be confirmed.
