Town accepts county planting offer

A Northumberland County Council offer to replant the Oaks roundabout at no charge will be accepted by Alnwick Town councillors.

The present perennial planting is said to have suffered from the wet weather.

At this month’s Alnwick Town Council meeting, Coun Bruce Hewison said: “It should be an attractive entrance to the town and at the moment, it looks like nobody cares.”
