Trial to clean up footpaths

MOVES are underway to improve footpaths and the areas surrounding them across Pegswood.

The parish council has brought in a contractor and will soon begin a trial period.

Works will include clearing weeds and getting rid of dog fouling and they will link with the schedules of Isos and Northumberland County Council.

Coun Alan Sambrook said: “It’s important that we write down exactly what we want the man to do so we can measure whether or not he is doing the work to our satisfaction.”
