Flooding in Haydon Bridge

a community meeting
Haydon Parish Council invites ALL villagers to a Meeting
7.30pm on Thursday 11 February at
the Community Centre
to discuss YOUR IDEAS and LEARN LESSONS about:
 How our village responded to the flooding
 What we want the authorities to do next time
 How to plan for flood prevention in the future
This is OUR VILLAGE Meeting and not for outside agencies


The Haydon Bridge based retained Fire and Rescue Service Unit has been scheduled for closure by Northumberland County Council.  The December floods have again shown that the crew's life and property saving presence here is essential!

Hundreds of villagers, standing room only, attended villager's and NCC open meetings Tuesday 5th, 12th & 21st Jan. to hear and present objections to the proposals. 

Add your voice now by writing to our MP Mr. Guy Opperman guy.opperman.mp@parliament.uk and to NCC online

Click Here

(NCC's proposals and updates are also to be found through this link.  The closing date for objections is 15th February)

Leader of NCC Cllr. J. Grant Davey can be e-mailed Here

An objectors' petition, with over 3,500 signatures, was presented to NCC at the 'consultation' meeting on the 12th Jan.

You can still sign an online FBU change.org petition which should include your postcode Here 

Tell your friends in Hexham, Allendale, Acomb, Bardon Mill, Haltwhistle, Prudhoe, Bellingham and users of the A69 as it will certainly knock on to affect them too!

Please join the campaign ... don't let this irrational proposal happen.
