Parish News - April 2013

It has come to the attention of Ovingham Parish Council that there appears to have been fly tipping in the area, particularly along Castle View. Northumberland County Council has also asked that residents report any tyres being dumped in the area, as there seems to be a problem locally. The numbers to ring are either 101 or 0845 600 6400.

By the time you read this, there will be some new faces on the Parish Council. Unless some nominations withdraw, an election will be held on 2nd May at the same time as the County Council election. It is good to see sufficient interest. More details in the next Magazine when the chair person will also have been elected.

The grass cutting season will have started and it is hoped that this is better than last year – something that the Parish Council keep a close eye on.

A copy of the Village Plan will be available in the Reading Room and Church and it is also available to view on the website (
