A community company that helps young people in Morpeth Stobhill and other areas is driving ahead after getting a new vehicle to transport equipment and people.

Bad Apples North East, which deliver services aimed at social and personal development, has recently taken delivery of an estate car.

County councillor for Stobhill, Ian Lindley, helped to fund it using some of his members’ local schemes allocation.

He said: “Caroline Ball has achieved huge amounts already with the community company she herself conceived. Bad Apples North East is a key partner for us in Stobhill – we will always work together and I will always do all I can to support them.”

Caroline added: “We work with some of the least well-off to help them develop the confidence and skills they need if they are to thrive and this involves means moving stuff and people around.

“Previously, we had to make do with my old personal Mini, so we’re very grateful to Ian for helping to fund reliable transport with a decent load capacity.”
