It has been three years since we were able to present Community Awards to those you have nominated, so the brief presentation ceremony before the Panto on Thursday will be slightly longer, and more special!
You may have noticed that the County Council has notified you, via its notices on lampposts, that the Neighbourhood Plan is out for another final consultation prior to its being Inspected by an appointed examiner, then sent to us for a referendum vote.
The plan is now available online at http://www.northumberland.gov.uk/ourplan, and at Berwick Library. The copy which was printed to be viewed in the summer is still in the Church, for those who prefer.
Details of how to comment are on the notices, which are at both human and, occasionally, dog height on the Main Street.
The Northumberland Flag is at half mast in memory of Don Soutter, who passed away 2 nights ago.
Don and Margaret lived in the village for 20 years, and in that time both became good friends with so many of us. When we learned that Don had gone, we thought this was a fitting way to show our fondness for him, and our support for Margaret and Tom.
After an illness, the Soutters moved back to the Manchester area, where they had lived before, and where Margaret and Don knew they could find closer medical support. They were sad to leave us, as we were to see them go. It was a joyful occasion, last summer when they both returned for a visit.
