LITTER BINS BESIDE THE RECYCLING BINS
There have been ongoing issues with disposal of large amounts of household rubbish in the two litter bins beside the glass recycling bins at the exit of West Thirston by the A1.  The Parish Council has therefore requested that NCC remove the litter bins but retain the Recycling Bins.  It is hoped that if NCC agree to remove these then the litter situation there will be rectified.  NCC has not as yet confirmed they are agreeable to this – watch this space.

 NORTHUMBERLAND COUNTY COUNCIL – new telephone numbers have been issued by NCC for contacting them as opposed to using the 0845 number.  The one for Thirston is 01670 627000

 BUDGET FOR PRECEPT – At the January meeting of the Parish Council the budget was agreed and it was agreed the precept amount remain at £6,500 as per the previous two years.
