  • A clean sweep for the Bloomers!

    As autumn brings its crop of fallen leaves, Sedgefield Bloomers get cracking in their usual fashion to clear them up. Slimy, unattractive and dangerous underfoot, wet leaves create wonderful compost if stored correctly, separate from other garden rubbish.

  • A fitting commemoration

    On November 14th, members of Sedgefield Local History Society (LHS) and Sedgefield Village Veterans met at the war memorial to commemorate Richard MacDonald, killed in action in the Great War 100 years ago to the day. Sedgefield LHS are grateful to Ian Blenkie for discovering a great deal of information about Richard and his family. Originally from Barningham, near Barnard Castle, in 1906, he married Ellen Gibbin, a Sedgefield girl.

  • Successful year for Friends of St Edmund’s

    The Friends of St Edmund’s Church in Sedgefield have now raised more than £150,000 in their efforts to help maintain the town’s ancient building since their group was formed in 1999. Last year alone, over £5,000 was raised for the maintenance and enhancement of the centuries-old church.

  • Steve’s Nature Diary

    The coldest and darkest months of the year are here, and it might be tempting to curl up indoors to wait for spring to arrive but DON’T! There are loads of things to do outdoors, and lots of wildlife to spot at this time of year.

  • PC Todd’s Report

    Last month we noticed a reduction in reported crime with only five reports made to the police. These include the theft of two ducks and two chickens from a garden in White House Drive, the theft of two chickens from a garden in West Park Lane, the theft of a sat nav from a vehicle parked in Rowan Oval and the theft of both number plates from a vehicle parked at Winterton Cottages.

  • Neighbourhood & Crime Watch

    There is no report this month. The next Panel Meeting takes place in the Fletcher Room of the Parish Hall at 7pm on Tuesday 6th December and everyone is welcome. Come along and meet the panel and feel free to express any concerns that you have.

  • Pub Watch

    A meeting was held recently at the Hardwick Arms. An incident was reported on from a previous meeting where a female was handed a twelve month ban. Members will not tolerate violent behaviour in any premises and will take action against offenders.
