Chairman’s Annual Report for May 2014 to May 2015

At the Annual Meeting on 19th May 2014, George Straughen was re-elected
as Chairman with John Urwin Vice Chairman.
The Council received the Chairman’s report which included a list of
improvements which could benefit the Parish. These were:

 Greater capitalisation on the history of the village
 More floral efforts throughout the village, as well as gateways
 Forming a working group of volunteers for village improvement projects
 More use of the Church for community based activities
 To look at traffic safety aspects around the School and bus stops
 To look at how to safeguard and retain the services we have,
i.e. shops, pubs, etc.
 To look at underground cabling for the village, to improve aesthetics
 To look at car-parking in the village, especially Castle Street and St.
Cuthbert’s Square
 To look further at a village web-site
 To promote the village with walk boards/ history cards

It was agreed that this list could be used as a framework for Parish Council
action. The list is still relevant and progress has been made on some items,
Norham Castle
Maintenance of ground/grass cutting is improved on previous years. We
should thank Terry Hume for his help in keeping the grounds tidy while we try
to negotiate a more permanent solution with English Heritage.

Gateway Signage/Planters
After a lot of work obtaining estimates for N.C.C. funding, which did not
materialise, the Parish Council has asked Billy Widdrington to build one
planter at the castle bank. This work is promised to be completed soon.
