SPORTING groups in the Haydon Bridge area could get their hands on a share of £12,000 in funding.
That’s the message from Coun. Alan Sharp, the area’s county council representative, who is looking for candidates for money provided by housing developers, which has been ring-fenced for sport in the area.
Speaking at the latest meeting of Haydon Parish Council, he said: “I’ll be speaking to the cricket club and the football club in the village, and we are looking to hear from anyone who may benefit.”
COMMUNITY groups in Corbridge are invited to a meeting to discuss a village clean-up.
Resident Fay Meek has long organised a twice annual village litter pick but now chairman of Corbridge Parish Council, Maurice Hodgson, is calling on more local support.
Representatives of village groups can attend a meeting at Corbridge Parish Hall at 6pm on October 21.
TO mark the 20th anniversary edition of the Hexham Courant’s Community Guide (delivered with your paper this week) advertisers were entered into a draw to win a free advert.
The draw was made by Mrs Ann Cass, of Stocksfield, and the winner was Tynedale Cricket Club.

A workman was buried alive while digging a drain in the Prudhoe Urban Council's housing estate at Oaklands.
Workmates rushed to the aid of 50-year-old Richard Barclay, of Stocksfield, when the wall of the trench he was digging collapsed.
They managed to dig his head and shoulders free before finally pulling him from the earth. He was found to be suffering from shock and bruising.
