Parish News - May 2016

Following requests from residents, the Parish Council contacted GoNorthEast asking them to make the stop at The White Swan a permanent one. The Parish Council felt that it was much safer to alight at the White Swan than by the Reading Room and the bus company have agreed.
There is still a vacancy for a Councillor on the Parish Council. Please contact myself if you are interested or require any further information.
Quotes are awaited for, amongst others, a path from the top of Horsley Road to the bungalows on the bend. Unfortunately, the priority for County Council at the moment is pot holes (which they had been on top of until the floods). Pot Holes can be reported on line ( or to any Councillor.
The May meeting is the annual meeting when chair and vice chair and representations to committees are elected. The May meeting is on the 19th at 7.15pm.

Clerk to Ovingham Parish Council

Musicians Wanted

Musicians wanted for the Tall Ships Regatta

Organisers are calling for local musicians to pitch for a chance to play at one of the biggest events ever held in Northumberland.

The North Sea Tall Ships Regatta Blyth 2016 is being held over the August Bank Holiday and will feature five zones of free family entertainment including music and theatre.
Up for grabs are spaces on stages at venues including the beach amphitheatre and bandstand, and the Dun Cow Quay.
There are also opportunities for buskers - solo artists and duos – to play up to 30-minute slots at designated spots across the town from the beach and park to the town centre and quayside.
To join the festival fun as a musician, please apply at the Tall Ships Blyth website: www.tallshipsblyth2016.

The deadline for applications is 9.00am on Tuesday 3 May.
