Return to Face-to-Face Parish Council Meetings
Please note the following safety precautions which must be adhered to by councillors and attendees, due to the Covid-19 pandemic: 

  1. Prior to attending the meeting (within 24 hours of the meeting), you are requested to take a lateral flow test (freely available from most pharmacists).
  2. You must not attend if you or anyone in your household/social/childcare bubble has Covid-19 symptoms.
  3. Social distancing must be adhered to at all times. Please take particular care to keep your distance from others while waiting to enter and exit the Hall. You may need to queue. Should you need to use the toilet facilities while at the Hall, you must wait until the suite of toilets is empty before entering. You should ensure that you maintain social distancing at all times.
  4. You must wear a mask at all times while in the Hall unless you are exempt.
  5. On Arrival, hand sanitiser is available immediately inside the entry doorway; please use this before entering the Main Hall.
  6. On Arrival, you must provide your track and trace details. A sign in sheet will be provided for this purpose. The completed sheet will be held in accordance with regulations then permanently deleted.
  7. After signing in, please make your way directly to your seat and remain seated unless you are leaving the Hall or accessing the toilet facilities. Your chair must remain at the required 2m distance from all other users, except those in your own household/social/childcare bubble. The Hall will be kept ventilated as far as possible; you may wish to bring warm layers as the air temperature may be cool.
  8. Please note that restrictions on numbers have been imposed in compliance with Covid-19 restrictions and the need for attendees to be socially distanced. The Parish Council will admit public and press on a first come first serve basis and may not be able to accommodate all members of the public who may wish to attend.

 Speedwatch - Appeal for Volunteers:

We need volunteers to join our Speedwatch Group which monitors speeding

traffic through our Parish using a speedgun.
Volunteers are trained by Northumbria Police.  This is a great deterrent and empowers our local community to reduce speeding in our village. Anyone wishing to join Speedwatch, please contact us ASAP.


We support Northumberland County Council's
Green Dog Walker Scheme

Northumberland is a beautiful place for residents and visitors to walk their dogs and the Green Dog Walker Scheme aims to keep it this way. For more information, visit:
