There were 14 willing volunteers on a fairly dull morning. Armed with our pickers and our bags we collected rubbish from as far North as The Avenue and as far South as the Salutation. We covered the East and West parts of the old wagonway (or trod). We also blitzed the King George V football field and used the parish vehicle to bring the collected bags up to The Pavilion for sorting and combining. Blue bags for glass, red for general rubbish, clear for cans and white for paper and cardboard. A lot of the obvious litter was beyond our reach behind wire fences, but we all felt we had made a noticeable difference to the areas covered. The general rubbish was put into the parish dumper bin, the paper and glass were recycled at Pity Me recycling centre – the cans were given to the Rotary Club of Houghton who collect and recycle drinks cans – they have a donated skip – the cans are crushed and then sold for hundreds of pounds which is then donated to charity. If anyone has suggestions for another litter pick before the 22nd April please let me know and I’ll see if it would be possible to arrange something. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

This is the latest addition
We have made some changes to the way our meetings are conducted. There will be a full council meeting every first Wednesday of the month, held at The Pavilion, King James V field, DH1 5BL, starting at 18:30. All are welcome to attend.
There will be additional subcommittee meetings held in the previous month. When there is a settled pattern to these meetings I will post advance notice of these meetings too. These meetings will also be open to members of the community.
Until then, I will be publishing the minutes of those meetings at the same time as I post the agenda for the full council meetings.
Councillor Peter Dawson
The Pavilion at King George V Field is now open for use. It has been completely refurbished and redecorated. The Parish Council is now meeting at the Pavilion again after our recent use of the Community Centre.
The Parish Council meets every first Wednesday of every month at 18:30 – members of the public are always welcome. If there are any issues you think the council should know about you can either get in touch via the website or come along to the meetings to tell us in person.
