Gardening Group going for Gold

The Trust are delighted to announce that Spittal Village has been awarded Gold status in Northumbria in Bloom judging for 2018, stepping up from the Silver award received last year.
The award is an overall score from the categories of Gold – for Horticultural achievement, Gold – for Involvement of members of the community and Silver – for Tidiness and Maintenance.

Our congratulations go to the Gardening Group for all their efforts in achieving and this to all the members of the community who have helped by attending fundraising events, donating flowers and bulbs to plant as well as donating prizes for the events and also tending some of the beds personally along the Main Street.


Beach Clean award

Congratulations to Raine Doelberg who helps organise beach cleaning at Spittal for her receipt of the Marsh Volunteer Award for Marine Conservation.

This Award is run in partnership with the Wildlife Trusts and recognises a volunteer who has made an outstanding contribution to marine conservation and who has furthered the work of the Wildlife Trusts in this area.

Thanks for supporting the Seaside Festival

After the lovely weather on Saturday unfortunately the weather got the better of us on Sunday but it didn’t dampen the spirits in the marquee where Direct Pets held their fun dog show and the Tideline Runners previewed their Sam & Isla production before we finished the day off with musical entertainment through until 10pm.

Sean Corcoran also provided some fantastic designs on the beach over the course of his visit. See his page at The Art Hand for more.
