HADSTON HOUSE UPDATE
Coun Scott Dickinson said things were ticking along as nicely as they could be at Hadston House. He said the take-up for the meals on wheels service has increased, a new admin officer has been appointed and the venue is holding the Tomorrow’s People course. But the adult learning service has been suspended, as funding has been pulled.
KEEP VEHICLES LOCKED, SAYS PC
PC Paul Dent urged residents to lock their vehicles after a spate of thefts from insecure vehicles. He also asked people to be aware of vandals etching letters into vehicles after a series of incidents in Widdrington and Morpeth.
PENELOPE TAKES COUNCIL HOT SEAT
Coun Penelope Fidkin is the new chairman, replacing Coun Dickinson. Coun Paul Claridge remains vice-chairman. He raised concerns about dog mess/horse manure on the footpath from North Broomhill to HMP Northumberland.
