More than 30 volunteers turned up and got busy picking litter, painting street furniture and generally tidying up in and around the town.

A host of issues that could not be tackled were noticed. These will be taken up with the relevant authorities.

The spring clean was a joint Glendale Gateway Trust (GGT)/Wooler Parish Council initiative, and was organised by Patrick Sheard.

“Thanks go mainly to the volunteers,” said the GGT’s Rachel Sinton. “They have made a significant difference to the look of the town.”
