The Town Council has been responsible for over 80 public seats and benches within the town since 1st April 2011. Previous to this they had been looked after by Northumberland County Council.
All the seats are inspected once a month but if you see any damage or disrepair to any of the seating in the town please report it to the Town Council using the Contact Information on the right.
In 2012/13 we replaced and upgraded the seats around the Pottergate Gardens and in 2013/14 we are renewing some of the seats in the Column Field. We are putting in place a phased refurbishment plan which will cover all seating in the town.
The Town Council welcomes requests from anyone who would like to provide a seat dedicated to a relative or friend. We are happy to give advice on new or existing locations.
