Ashington Town Council Commends Northumberland County Council Neighbourhood Services Team

Ashington Town Council is pleased to share the ongoing efforts of the Northumberland County Council Neighbourhood Services Team, funded through a significant Partnership Agreement. This agreement, underpinned by Ashington Town Council, supports a dedicated workforce of five operatives, including the essential vehicles and machinery required to maintain and enhance our community environment.

The primary responsibilities of this workforce include emptying public litter bins, street cleansing, and responding to incidents of fly-tipping. However, these dedicated operatives have on occasion been redirected to tackle other pressing issues such as weed spraying, clearances, hedge maintenance, and strimming. This adaptability ensures that they can provide comprehensive support to the core workforce, addressing a wide range of environmental issues in Ashington. We have included various before and after photographs shared at our last two Partnership board meetings.
