  • “Chop, chop, chop…”

    TWO SISTERS have had their hair chopped off by a teacher in their school assembly to raise money for a little boy suffering from a rare form of epilepsy. Grace Stanley, 7, and her 5-year-old sister Florence, from Sedgefield Primary School, County Durham, had just over 12 inches cut from their long hair to send to The Little Princess Trust, which makes wigs for children suffering from hair loss.

  • Coxhoe Recycling Centre
    Coxhoe Recycling Centre

    I am singing the praises of a group whose diligence and sheer determination to do a great job are benefiting our community and the planet as a whole!


Community Life Snippets
  • Citizen of the Year

    Every year you are asked to nominate someone who has made or is making a real difference to our community, to be considered for this award. The nomination form is inside the paper and you have about 3 weeks to make the case for your nominee.

  • If you have some time to spare...

    There is so much on offer in and around Sedgefield which only happens through the dedication of all kinds of people making all kinds of things possible - for us, for our children, for our elders, for our businesses.

  • Another way to help our community...

    Readers with school aged children will no doubt be familiar with Sainsbury’s Active Kids scheme, which helps customers to support young people by collecting vouchers after every shopping visit to Sainsbury’s.
