For confirmation of the return of the election of parish councillors, please see the notice below.

Northumberland County Council’s Elections Office is recruiting for the elections that take place on 6 May. 

Available roles include:  

A further four defibrillators have been installed today: on the A695 at Branch End Play Area; at Birkdene (close to and opposite the junction with Welton Close); at New Ridley Road opposite Meadowfield Road; and on the B6309 at Hindley. It will take a few days for them to be activated on the ambulance service systems. 

Some of the Council's new defibrillator cabinets have been installed at locations around Stocksfield - at Broomley, Hindley and Ridley Mill. The recent bad weather has delayed new power supplies to the cabinets but they should become operational within the next few weeks.
