Our Environment

We are so fortunate that our area has lots of open and wooded areas that we can enjoy.  The Parish Council works with Northumberland County Council to look after these areas.  We have a dedicated team that works to cut our grass, control weeds, clears paths, plants in flower beds, litter picks and generally is concerned with open and green spaces.

We also look at the environment of our built up areas in the Parish, providing litter bins, flower towers, bus shelters and public seating.
