Retirement wishes to Clerk
At the Parish Council meeting in March 2018, the Members and staff wished Mrs Susan Carmedy a long and happy retirement. Susan had worked as Clerk to the Council for 29 years and during this period had advised and assisted the Council. The Members and staff wish Susan a happy and enjoyable retirement.
Official Opening of New Sculpture, Ushaw Moor
The Chairman of the Parish Council, Councillor Susan Nelson, will perform the official opening of the new sculpture at Whitehouse Lane on Monday 14th November at 11.00am. Local school children, community group representatives, unitary and parish councillors will be among those attending. The project has finally come to fruition thanks to funding from the Local Members AAP budgets, the Parish Council and S106 monies from local developments at Cockhouse Lane and Whitehouse Lane. Local school children were involved in the design process with Sculptor, Graeme Hopper visiting Silver Trees and St.Joseph’s Primary schools earlier this year. The Sculpture depicts the mining history of the area and the inclusion of poppies commemorates the centenary of the First World War and conflicts since. There will also be a permanent fixing for an annual Christmas Tree so the local community can come together to celebrate the festive season.
