Stocksfield village notes

CHILDREN of Stocksfield should listen out this evening (Friday), and tomorrow evening for the sound of Santa’s sleigh bells because I’m reliably informed that the big man in red is visiting our village. This year Santa’s Sleigh, courtesy of the Tynedale Lions, will not only be bringing good cheer, but also doing its bit for the environment, as the old petrol generator which has powered the lights in previous years has been replaced by a battery which will power the LED lighting system.

Bellingham notes

WHAT a joy the Christmas Tree festival at St Cuthbert’s Church was! The ingenuity, skill and sheer hard work which went into the 21 entries was quite fantastic.THE Christmas spirit was in short supply at Hillside over the weekend. Yet again a number of properties were without electricity for several hours on Saturday on one of the coldest nights of the year. THE prize bingo at the golf club fell victim to the snow last Thursday. The event has been rearranged for January 22, at 7.30 in the clubhouse.A FAMILIAR figure from Bellingham Surgery for the last 20 years or so has chosen a good moment to hang up her stethoscope.
