Belford Co-op community planters project

A new project was completed in October, 2014. Belford Co-op allocated some money to a community planters project. This money bought timber for the five new wooden flower troughs in place along the burn side of the Co-op store.

Eric Gassner and Les Carr built the planters during the summer and they were duly installed beside the Co-op. Steven Birdsall kindly donated all of the gravel which was spread evenly around the planters by some of the Year 8 pupils from St. Mary's Middle School in Belford.

The Co-op supplied some compost and the rest of the compost and all of the winter flowers were bought by Belford Community Group. We needed an expert and Caroline Cook, who looks after the planters in the Market Place and others besides, gave a second group of pupils instruction on how to plant and dead head the flowers. Bulbs were also planted to come up in the spring of next year. A good time was had by all.

A sign will be erected to mark the occasion and it is hoped that the staff from the Co-op and the pupils will be able to maintain a colourful display for all to enjoy throughout the years ahead.

More photos to come ......

Belford Burn Wind Farm Was Refused, Unanimously.

We are delighted to tell you that last night, BELFORD BURN WIND FARM WAS REFUSED, UNANIMOUSLY.

Phil McCarthy made a good presentation and recommended refusal.
Our Chairman Chris Craddock, Brenda Stanton, Chair of Belford Parish Council, The National Trust and John Woodman, AONB all made excellent presentations. We thank them all.

The Councillors refused this application on major issues, and preservation of this special coastline was high on their agenda. Views from the coast are clearly very important.

The local opposition was praised, and the large attendance at the NCC meeting in Belford last November was very much noted. Thank you all for turning out that night and indeed, for all your objection letters, and the many MANY other ways that you have contributed to this proposal being refused.

We cannot be complacent. Energie Kontor have a reputation of appealing everything and they have six months to do so. Your committee will be considering this.
Air Farmers, the Middleton Burn developers, are still in the side lines. They will be noting this outcome, and we could be facing an application from them... or not!

We are also delighted for those at Netherwitton, who also had their application refused unanimously.
