Parish boost

THREE organisations have received funding support from Pegswood Parish Council.

After being told that Ashington-based Central Palz, a care service which improves the quality of life for patients coping with a palliative illness, has helped up to 11 Pegswood residents at one time in the past and two at the moment, members agreed to give it a £100 donation.

They also approved grants of £100 and £50 for the Great North Air Ambulance and Morpeth Northumbrian Gathering Committee respectively.
