Reports from our County Councillors #140
A very important part of the celebrations was the recognition of our unsung heroes. Nominations were available to every Councillor in Northumberland to nominate a person in their area, to receive the award on May 6.
The King made it clear that he wanted to recognise the work of volunteers, and this was NCC’s way of doing this.
In my area, I was delighted to nominate Maggie Weir for all the work that she has done with the ‘Pride of Amble’ group and other good causes and charities. If you know Maggie you will know just how much effort she puts into helping anyone who needs it. Many of you will have seen her on her hands and knees weeding and working in the Town Square and she shuns any sort of publicity for any of her work.
Anti-social behaviour takes many forms from aggressive, noisy or abusive behaviour within our community and neighbourhood, disturbances also involving drugs, animals, and off road motorcycles, if you witness anti-social behaviour please report it.
Your neighbourhood can be an area where you live, work or visit often.
In March, Amble held a community engagement event involving the Police and Partners working together to make our communities and everyone within it feel safe, secure and comfortable within their homes and community.
I attended a walk around Amble with officers from Local Police, Public Protection, Housing and the Local Fire Service raising concerns with businesses on Queen Street and residents in the surrounding area, we also held a drop in session at the public library which was well attended.
Fire Officers provided fire safety advice and guidance, they also offer safe and well-being visits to those who needed their help.
If you require a safe and well-being visit please call 01670 621149 to book a visit or Email Northumberland Fire service- email@example.com
