Prudhoe Town Council has appointed one of its members to be the new representative on Prudhoe Community Partnership.

Mr George Hepburn, chair of trustees at the community-led regeneration charity, attended last week’s meeting of Prudhoe Town Council while councillors considered whether to appoint another of its members to the board to replace Coun. Eileen Burt, who resigned from the council earlier this year.

Councillors agreed to make a new appointment and selected Coun. Brenda Grey for the role.
