NORTHUMBERLAND can count on a little TLC after the National Trust signed up to a new environmental campaign.

Northumberland County Council has launched the ‘LOVE Northumberland — Caring for our County’ campaign to encourage communities and individuals to help keep the area clean, green and thriving. Several residents have since signed up as environmental champions and groups have come forward to talk to the council about how best they can clean up their areas.

Now the National Trust, which works to preserve buildings, the countryside and coastline and ensure people can visit them, has signed a pledge to work with the authority in line with the LOVE initiative.

Assistant Director of Operations Liz Fisher said: “The Trust cares for some of the most iconic properties and outdoor spaces in the region, including Cragside, Wallington and the Farne Islands, as well as miles of Northumberland coastline and countryside, which makes the LOVE Northumberland campaign hugely relevant for us. We are delighted to be working in partnership with the county council and hope that everyone in Northumberland pledges their support to care for this stunning county.”

The pledge was signed at Seaton Delaval Hall last week.

Council Executive Member for Neighbourhood Services Ian Lindley said: “We are very keen to work with an increasingly wide range of organisations and individuals across the county with the aim of ensuring that our county is beautiful for the benefit of residents and visitors alike.”
