Play Park has reopened

We are pleased to have reopened the play park now that Covid-19 restrictions have been eased.

It’s not possible to clean and sanitise this outdoor equipment so parents and carers are asked to ensure that children use hand gel frequently.  We have also suggested a maximum number of children who should use the equipment at any one time.  If it’s busy please come back later.  Follow the guidance displayed at the entrance gate or for more information,  please click here: poster.

Right to inspect the Accounting Records for 19/20

The Parish Council has submitted its annual return to the external auditor, PKF Littlejohn LLP. Any person interested has the right to inspect and make copies of the accounting records for 2019/20.  A notice explaining these rights can be found here. Additionally, the unaudited annual governance and accountability return which has been submitted to the auditor can be found here.  Please note: the accounting statements as published may be subject to change.

Outdoor Recreation Survey

Our sports pavilion is a timber hut with no heating, no electricity, no wc’s, let alone any disabled facilities. It is home to 3 cricket teams and a Sunday morning football team, but could be so much more.

Before embarking on the refurbishment of the sports pavilion, the Parish Council are keen to find out your views on how we use the sports pavilion and what we might use it in future, for the benefit of the whole village.
We would be grateful if you could complete the survey below.  Remember to indicate how many members of your family participate, if relevant.

Audiology Services in Northumberland

At Healthwatch Northumberland we want to find out about people’s views and experiences of health and social care. We want to collect feedback from people, as well as raising awareness about who we are and what we do. We are an independent champion for the people of Northumberland, and share people’s views with service providers to create change and improvement.

As part of this we have regular events where we try to gather the views of the people of Northumberland. We are hosting one such event in Hexham on Thursday 19th September which I’ve included the details to below:

Event Name: Let’s Talk – Audiology Services, Hexham

Event Focus: We want to talk to people with hearing loss about their experiences of using audiology or hearing aid/s services. We are especially interested in hearing from people in the most rural and isolated areas of the county but everyone is welcome to feedback.

Event Location: Resource Room, Adapt (North East), Burn Lane, Hexham

Event Date: Thursday 19th September

Event Time: 13.00-14.30

I am emailing in the hope that you might be able to help to spread word of our event within your parish. If you know anyone who has experienced using any kind of hearing loss services who might like to feedback we would really appreciate you sharing this (attached) poster or information with them. We want to hear about all kinds of hearing loss services, including drop-in community services and audiology clinics, whether this involved hearing aid/s battery replacement or consultation.

We also appreciate that it might be difficult for some people to attend an event in the Hexham area. If people are interested in feeding back but are unable to attend they can get in touch with us in any of the following methods:
