In Boosbeck, with Clive and Jean Maidens having already retired before Christmas and Kath Jackson stepping down at the election, we now have three new councillors representing the Boosbeck Ward - Marlene Brown, Paul Reed and Rachel Swarbrick.
In Lingdale Joan James has stepped down and her place as a councillor has been taken by Paula Miller.

It was a fantastic day for the Lockwood Parish Council area at the 2014 Northumbria in Bloom awards ceremony which was held at Gosforth Park racecourse, Newcastle, on Tuesday 16th September 2014, as representatives from the area picked up no fewer than 11 awards.
There were awards for three of our villages with Moorsholm also scooping the top prize with the Percy Boydell Trophy for best overall entry into the 2014 competition.
