The AONB is interested in supporting the parish council’s concerns.

• Coun John Hobrough said that Warkworth is on a list for parking support, after attending an AONB meeting. It is hoped talks can take place early next year to discuss help with a transport plan.

• Leaf and gully clearing has been carried out on Station Road, following complaints about flooding. The clerk is to find out what the future plans are for the area.

• Talks are on going about the possibility of planting a Magna Carta King John Parliament oak tree, to honour the village’s connection to the historic document.

• Two Kilmarnock willows, which grow to a height of about two metres, will be purchased and planted at The Butts at an appropriate planting time.
