Signs to inform of dual bin use
The council is to look at putting signs on bins to let residents know that dog waste can now be put in normal litter bins.
Coun Gilson said he would inquire about prices but county Coun Steven Bridgett said Northumberland County Council may already have stickers which the parish council could use.
POLICE WARN OF FARM PHONE SCAM
Police have warned people in Coquetdale about a phone scam to farmers. Reports have been made of farmers being contacted to put an advert in a Northumbria Police community leaflet and the caller asks for card detials to pay for it. Northumbria Police do not call people for advertising and the call is a scam.
PLANS TO MARK FIRST WORLD WAR
Coun Mark Gilson is looking into ways that the parish can mark the centenary of the start of the First World War next year. He said: “War was declared at 11pm on August 4, 1914, so it might be difficult to do anything commemorative at that time of night.”
However, a beacon may be lit.
TREES WILL BE PLANTED SOON
Trees which were bought by members of the public to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee will be planted near the Haugh car park soon. The council was unable to have them planted earlier because of works to repair a landslip along the Thropton road. An area of land for the trees has been earmarked.
