Nine new affordable homes for rent in Wooler will soon be available, with the first open for applications today.

Five apartments are in the Wheatsheaf building on the High Street and four more are at Roddam Dene House, just off the High Street.

Anyone interested in renting one of the properties needs to be registered on the Northumberland Homefinder website. Help with this is available at the Cheviot Centre in Wooler (01668 282406), as is more information.

The first group of homes will go on the Homefinder site today and be ready for occupation early in the new year.

All the apartments are two-bedroom apart from two at the Wheatsheaf which have one bedroom.

An open day is taking place at the Wheatsheaf building on on Saturday, December 20, and at Roddam Dene House, on Sunday, December 21. They will be open from 10am to 2pm on both days.
