Tree and bulb planting has taken place at the new roundabout along Willowburn Avenue, near to Willowburn Sports and Leisure Centre.

Coun Peter Edge, who helped with the work, said that it was done to improve the safety and aesthetics in the area.

The initiative was done by the town council, through cooperation with Northumberland County Council.

Earlier this year, the Alnwick Raffle – which was the brainchild of Jonathan Park, from the town’s Halifax Community Bank branch – was held to raise money to purchase plants to spruce up various parts of Alnwick and some planting has already been done.
