News

  • WALL AT THE WYND No-one can have failed to see that the wall at the Wynd entrance to the West Allotments had been hit and part had fallen down. Nobody came forward and we have failed to find who was responsible for this, but it has been reported to the police. Delay to the repairs are due to the costs having to be taken up with our insurers, who then need to approve the work. We have accepted a tender and hope that clearing the fallen stone and repairing the wall will be completed soon.

  • CYCLE CONTRAFLOW. NCC North Area Committee members have accepted and agreed with the petition to amend the part of the National Cycle Route which is within our one way system. Officers will now look at the best way to achieve this so that motorists and cyclists are travelling in the same direction. This may involve highway enhancements so it could be some time before this is changed. Meanwhile, please continue to be careful whether a pedestrian, a cyclist or a motorist, when you are going round the Town Square and in Leazes Street.

  • WAR MEMORIAL FUNDING The generosity of our small community is amazing. We are so very grateful for the money continuing to come in from a variety of sources to help repair our Memorial and the Clock. How many of us still look up to see the time before we recollect it is stopped at present? Weather permitting work will commence in March/April and hopefully will be complete without six weeks. Whilst we have been fortunate to receive some grant funding from the War Memorials Trust, this undertaking, although still expensive, will be very worthwhile. We hope that once completed, all will treat it with the respect it deserves.

  • BUDGET The budget is drawn up for the next financial year as NCC require the figure now to add to the Council Tax calculations. Amble has added just over 60 houses to the stock which is used to work out the individual contribution. Partly due to this addition we have been able to keep the precept rise to only 3% per band D property. The new budget enables us to have more manpower throughout the year to enhance the standards in the town as well as maintaining the new CCTV system. It will continue to fund everything we have put in place in the past as well as carrying on with our litter bin replacement project and our contribution to keep the car park behind Tesco open- whilst we continue to lobby for a long term solution to the problem. We have allocated further funds to complete the work needed to the War Memorial Clock Tower and are discussing the possibility of adding a new memorial for all conflicts rather than only the World Wars currently commemorated. We will continue to repoint more of the East Cemetery walls and will look at replacing the information boards there. There is also money available to help other organisations in the town with their work for and in our community.
