New seats to be installed

NEW public seats will be installed in a Ponteland shopping area.
Members of Ponteland Town Council agreed that a wooden bench seat in Broadway, Darras Hall, needed to be replaced as it is in poor condition.
The clerk submitted various options for consideration and after a vote, it was decided to purchase two steel seats which will be fixed back-to-back.
Coun Joyce Butcher said: "The bench seat is falling apart and it looks out of place with the rest of Broadway, so these new seats will give that particular area an uplift."
