Mobile phone - lost, found and returned!

A couple of weeks ago, a mobile phone was found on the playing field and handed in as lost property at Prudhoe police station.
The person who lost it saw the note that was put up and reclaimed it.
He is understandably very relieved and would like to thank the finder personally.
Give me a ring (Phil Holden 830517) if you found it and I'll put you in touch.

Reminder - Bin Day Is Changing

A reminder that bin collection day is changing starting week commencing Monday 12 September.

All houses should have had a leaflet explaining the reasons for the change and the new day for collection. As collection times might change from time-to-time, residents are asked to make sure their bins are ready for emptying by 7am.

Collection of garden waste bins is not affected.

Full details can be found on the County Council's web site - or you can ring customer services on 0845 600 6400.

New Litter Bin - River View

The litter bin located at the entrance to the Village Green disappeared in mysterious circumstances some time ago. Where did it go?

Since the county council wouldn't pay for a replacement, Ovingham Parish Council agreed to buy one. In the photo, Cllr. Richard Benjamin is seen testing it out with its first bit of litter. The bin can quite properly be used for bagged dog poo.

OPC also agreed to provide a completely new one at the entrance to the field which leads up to Whittle Dene just off Horsley Road. This one will be installed soon and it is planned to fix both bins up with a dispenser for free poo-bags ... so no excuses now!
