Prudhoe Innovation


I was in Prudhoe again last week catching up with the Partnership and members of the community who are really pushing the town forward. I am constantly surprised by the innovation on show and this meeting was no exception.

They have plans to use eBay to develop a community shop, preparations for their Christmas fayre are well underway, they have exciting plans to launch a new Community magazine - with a circulation of more than 25,000, and if that weren't enough they are also running a pilot pay by the hour community car, available to local residents 24/7.

The new Nissan Note car is located just off Prudhoe Front Street and available for residents to book by the hour, day, or as long as members need as an alternative to expensive car ownership.

As ever some really exciting stuff. You can find out more about the car share scheme at www.commonwheels.org.uk
