Prudhoe Riverside

We believe the Prudhoe riverside area is vital for recreation, #healthwalks #TynedaleSport and supporting #TynedaleTourism which all can help create / retain -#TynedaleJobs

As a result NCC, together with partners are investing to improve this area.

Landscaping, larger litter bins, access and more.

Getting a fair share for #Prudhoe #Tynedale

One of many reasons why people should Visit Prudhoe

(Although the sign says Thurs /Fri the work is well under way now)





Social mobility

A very inspirational morning at Prudhoe Community High School as Justine Greening MP visited to discuss with staff and students the subject of social mobility accompanied by Guy.

Amazing students, staff and building

They are all a huge part of the #PrudhoeCommunity.


We should all be #ProudOfPrudhoe

Really enjoyed chatting to a group of year 12 students about matters that impact upon their lives now and into the future and working on solving some of these.



Homes England land for sale

Homes England are now advertising land for sale within the #Prudhoe area.

(Old Hospital land)

It is common practice for this type of land to be sold on a regular basis, land is often put up for sale and never sold or it could take a long period to sell.

There should be no change regarding any public right of way or use of the land.

We have asked for a meeting with Homes England in relation to another matter, and when we meet we will obviously raise this point.

We have also contacted the agent to note our interest.

We have also alerted officers and interested organisations and will be working with them.

As always we will try to keep the public informed of anything of interest.

Please see post below re the new local plan & what it means,particularly about preserving the green belt.

A pure guesstimate of the prices being sought are – circa £5k for the pasture land per acre & circa £ 2k  for the woodland per acre.

Proud to support the future.

Adderlane Lunch Hall Revamp.jpg


Pupils at Adderlane Academy in Prudhoe are now able to enjoy healthy school meals from the comfort of their new lunch tables and chairs, thanks to the generosity of local partners.
The school has teamed up with Warburton’s, local Northumberland County Councillor,
Gordon Stewart, who applied for funding through the Council’s Elected Member’s Scheme, and North East housing developer, Gentoo Homes, who is currently building 404 homes at Cottier Grange  Prudhoe.

The new tables and chairs, which are much more sturdy and safer than the school’s
previous 20 year old lunch set, have helped to make meal times more comfortable for the
pupils and because they are so easy and quick to put away – they have also helped to add
an additional 15 minutes to the PE class that follows lunch in the hall.

Emma Potts, Head Teacher at Adderlane Academy, said: “We’re absolutely delighted with the new tables and chairs and the school is so grateful for the fantastic generosity of the donors – without their support it wouldn’t have been possible to improve the pupils’ lunch time experience!”

Brendon Ferguson, Head of Strategic Projects at Gentoo Homes, said:
“As a responsible housing developer, it’s important for us to work with local organisations and give something back to the local community. We’re delighted to work with other local partners to help Emma to revamp the school lunch hall for the pupils.”

Gordon Stewart, Northumberland County Councillor for Prudhoe South, said:
“I am delighted that Northumberland County Council agreed to support Adderlane Academy as they have shown a real commitment towards providing healthy living education on a long term basis. I’m also really grateful for the support shown by Gentoo Homes and Warburton’s.”

Northumberland fire & Rescue service


During a visit to meet the firefighters at Prudhoe station it was good to hear about issues impacting upon the great work they do.


They were concerned about the recruitment & retention of retained & full time firefighters.


We held a successful recruitment event at the Prudhoe Station. Check out the Hexham Courant report – Click here (including visit by NCC Cabinet member Cllr John Riddle)

They said other services had popular social media platforms.

We agreed this would have many benefits  and put the suggestion foward, as a result the service has now just introduced a facebook page  which immeditally became very popular, – Click here 

Our support for the young people ‘The future of Prudhoe’ is so important to us all and we are pleased to help promote the ‘Young firefighters scheme’ – Click here

Others issues include accessabilty to areas due to parked vehicles –

We work closely with the fire & rescue service as well as the Police to raise the issue with the public on a periodical basis.

Multi agency meeting.

A meeting was held last week at Highfield Middle School (Thursday 15th  March 2018) to develop links between partners and encourage discussion. The meeting was convened hoping to agree a holistic approach concerning issues relating to young people in the town.
Those attending represented Business, Schools, Northumbria Police, Town Council, County Councillors & The NCC Youth Service as well as Parents, Carers and Governors.
Discussion included recent incidents of disorder & damage as well as the provision of support for the young people and their families.
The attendees brought with them a wealth of experience and suggestions which will be considered (and hopefully actioned) for the benefit of the whole community.
We envisage that this will be the first of many meetings focusing on the key objective:all parties joining forces to ensure the very best quality of provision for all.
