  • Energy Switch Now Open

    Sedgefield Energy Switch is a new initiative from Sedgefield Development Trust. Working together with iChoosr, we're trying to help Sedgefield residents save money on their domestic gas and electricity bills. So far Sedgefield households have saved, on average, over £200 each per year, simply by switching their energy tariff or supplier through the scheme.

  • Spring judging

    Northumbria in Bloom judges Robert Germany and Anthea Stephenson enjoyed their spring visit to Sedgefield on a sunny April morning. They were very impressed by the impeccable standard of the floral beds created by council gardeners Stephen Young and his new partner Ben Gray, who are also responsible for the colourful tubs of flowers in the village centre.

  • Helping the NHS to help us

    I am sure that most of us have contacted the GP surgery at some point needing an appointment and been frustrated that we have been unable to book one on a day and time that is convenient to us. Meanwhile at the GP surgery, the staff have to deal with the frustration of patients not turning up for appointments, sometimes even those who have been given an appointment that day for something ‘urgent’.

  • Couch to 5k… it could be you!

    In January a group of self-declared ‘couch potatoes’ joined a beginners running group. Led by Sheree Lyons, a run leader and member of Sedgefield Harriers the group started with simple warm up exercises and some gentle jogging.

  • Sedgefield Farmers’ Market Sunday 7th May

    Despite the coincidence of the Bishop Auckland Food festival, we had another record market in April, with a total of 18 stalls around the green. We were very pleased to reach this level and it shows just how successful the market is becoming. If you’ve never tried the market, you might be pleasantly surprised by what you find if you pop along for a look.

  • The 47th Sedgefield Mediaeval Fayre

    SCA are now in the final stages of the organisation of this year’s Mediaeval Fayre. The day begins at 10 am with the procession of the May Queen and the children’s walking parade. On the green, as well as the fairground rides, there is an array of stalls (books, tombola, groceries, white elephant, coconut shy, raffle) as well as a range of charity and craft stalls.

  • Letter from PC Todd

    Crimes reported this month include burglary, theft and criminal damage. In Eastwell Close, thieves removed the keys to two vehicles after they had forced entry to a property via the patio doors. Later one vehicle was found abandoned and the other burnt out. Hardwick Hall suffered from more lead being taken from the roof and at the Total Garage two males took confectionary whilst paying for fuel.
