Diamond discussions

TALKS are set to take place in Amble next month to discuss if the town wants to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

A working party meeting is being held for interested residents and representatives from local schools, community groups, organisations, churches and businesses, to see if an event can be organised to mark next year’s Royal festivities.

The meeting is taking place on Friday, October 7, at 5pm, in the council meeting room, at the Harbour Commissioner’s building.

People should contact Elaine Brown on 01665 714695 or email ambletcclerk@btconnect.com to confirm their attendance or if anyone is unable to attend but would still like to be involved as notes from the meeting will be forwarded.
