VILLAGE HALL Thank you to the anonymous donor of the lavender hedge and sundial outside the Village Hall. Much appreciated.
THANK YOU to all who took part and all who attended the Church Summer Fair. A happy occasion, it raised over £2050 for church funds. Much needed support.
MESSY CHURCH Planned dates are Sundays 16th July and 20th August, 2.30 until 4pm. For more information contact Jacqui Budge (382554) or the Vicar (382325)
USE OF FULL POSTAL ADDRESSES The parish council has been approached on a number of occasions recently regarding difficulties encountered by delivery drivers in trying to find the correct property in the village. Some of the postal code areas in the village are indeed confusing, and sat nav does not help! It has been suggested that where possible residents use their full postal address including street name (if there is one!) to try to alleviate the problem.


Any contributions should be given to Josephine Harris (382363) before Monday 28th August.    Newsround is put onto our website each month; if you do not wish your name, telephone number, or any other detail to be published, please advise.

Minutes of Norham Parish Council

Minutes for Parish Council Meetings can be found on the Parish Council pages.




DOG FOULING The Parish Council has yet again received complaints regarding dog fouling, on Ubbanford green, where children play, and on the grass areas near and on North Lane. Dog mess is an eyesore and a health hazard. If you are a dog owner, you have a legal duty to clean up every time your dog messes in a public place, and you may be subject to prosecution if you do not.

Booking of the village green should be done via the Clerk to the Parish Council, Victoria Craig, [email protected], 01289-382754.
Booking of the village hall should be done via Linda, Masons Arms, either in person or by phone 01289-382326
