Lib Dem councillors in Whickham North have coordinated a programme of work for the area at the bottom of Rose Avenue. Residents had complained that although the centre of the village looked beautiful again this year, there were one or two areas of Whickham that appeared to be have been temporarily forgotten.
Following this, local councillors investigated the situation to see what could be done.
"We are now pleased to report that Gateshead Housing company are to repair the fencing and Gateshead Council’s Local Environmental Services department are to cut back vegetation." said Cllr Peter Craig. "Work is due to start at the beginning of November."
