Blooming Shotley Bridge

Following the last open meeting, volunteers from the Village Trust met today to form an action group with a view to ‘greening up’ the local area. Helen Douglas, Civic Pride Officer, Northern Area, attended to offer advice and assistance from Durham County Council.

The Group intends to register the village in the Britain in Bloom Neighbourhood Awards.  But the first step is to identify suitable sites for treatment and to decide on the boundary for the scheme. Then an action plan will need to be devised to prioritise projects and funding sourced.

It is hoped that the Shotley Bridge Business and Community Partnership will give their full support to the initiative.
