Cllr Glen Sanderson, cabinet member for the environment and local services at Northumberland County Council, visited Newsham Primary School to view the work at the school which contributed to them gaining a runner-up award last year.

Submissions are invited from projects and initiatives which improve local areas or neighbourhoods for the benefit of the community - from environmentally minded groups, schools and individuals across Northumberland who have made a difference in their area over the past year.

The award categories are: best children’s project; best young people’s project; best urban project; best coast or countryside project; best new project; best school recycling project; and an award for an outstanding individual.

Coun Glen Sanderson, cabinet member for the environment and local services at Northumberland County Council, said: “The LOVE Northumberland awards celebrate the work of the schools, community groups and individual volunteers whose endeavours preserve and enhance the environment of our great county.
