Janet Pibworth, assistant to the town clerk, reported that there had been a very positive response to the attendance of the band who had been unable to attend last year because of the pandemic.

The town council also gave a donation to the Royal British Legion (RBL).

Cllr John Parker reported that the formation of an Alnwick branch of the RBL was progressing well and hoped that in future years the council would be able to work directly with the new local group.
