Prudhoe commemorates 100 years.....

Prudhoe commemorates 100 years...

Prudhoe Town Council was very clear that it wished to help residents mark and commemorate 100 years since the end of WW1.

The Town Council received information from Irene Davis (Prudhoe Women's Branch of the Royal British Legion) regarding the spectacular Silent Soldiers being sold via The Poppy Factory and the council was hugely supportive of four being purchased to stand at the Gateways to the town.  

The Prudhoe Branch of the Royal British Legion bought a further two soldiers; one stands on 'The Glade' near the RBL Memorial and another at The Lychgate War Memorial at St. Mary Magdalene Church.

Like last year, volunteers have put poppies on lamp posts and at our schools and the town looks colourful and ready for 11th November.

A further commemoration is in the form of the planting at the Road Ends (opposite The Syntax), an area recently taken over by Prudhoe Town Council.  The Town Council has maintained the flower beds for a number of years but is now responsible for the toilet block also. 

 

It is not usual for a commemorative planting during autumn/winter but the Prudhoe in Bloom group of Prudhoe Town Council thought the above scheme would work well and Hollybush Nursery was able to deliver.

Many residents have already commented that the bed looks impressive and that they are proud that their town is marking this very special Remembrance Day.

DOG FOULING..
14 September 2018

Click on the image below to see the recent report on Dog Fouling in Northumberland and more specifically in Prudhoe; it identifies the measures that have been taken by Northumberland County Council, the number of reports made and the penalties imposed.

Very few reports are made but it seems every day there is a post on social media about dog fouling; this suggests that those who post do not follow up with a formal report. 

Reporting on the NCC website is very easy, follow the link below.  If you are a dog walker and persistently notice mess that others haven't picked up, save the link, even easier.
