Another busy day in the constituency on Saturday. Met up with Cllr Ian Hutchinson for a meeting at the Allendale Bakery, part of the Allen Mill Regeneration project. Some fantastic local enterprises, including MAKE - a recycling craft shop.
Then off to see Cllr Colin Horncastle open the Catton Village Fair. Got some great bargains, including plenty of jam, a lasagne dish... and a Christmas tree. Really good village atmosphere.
Then managed to pop along to the Ovingham Goose Fair, fantastic atmosphere; brilliant support from the local police; real community policing. Some great local stalls as well from Green Ovingham and the Prudhoe air cadets .
