North Sunderland Parish Council round-up


Members agreed to limit the width of memorials/headstones for casket plots in the cemetery to 22 inches, just smaller than the two-foot plots.

Otherwise, the memorials will be two/three inches larger and burial space will be lost.

• As with last year, one of the bus services to Alnwick during the summer timetable, which starts on May 24, will not depart from Seahouses. Last year, it started at Newton-by-the-Sea. This year, it leaves Beadnell at 8.52am.

• Couns Kelvin Rushworth, Sylvia Hillan and Maureen Bramley are going on a web-training course and will be setting up a website for the parish council which will feature agendas and minutes, information about cemetery charges, etc. Members also agreed to provide information about what the parish council is doing to the Village News.
