Alnwick residents turned out in force at today’s Alnwick Forum which gave people the opportunity to find out information about a variety of plans, groups, and community initiatives across the town.
Alnwick Town Mayor, Councillor Geoff Watson said: “The attendance at the Forum was great, I thank all those who attended and everyone who worked behind the scenes to ensure the event was a success. It was encouraging to see so many conversations taking place in the Northumberland Hall.”
His sentiments were echoed by Town and County Councillor, Gordon Castle, who added: “I am very impressed with the turnout, and this reflects well on the joint working between Alnwick Town Council and Northumberland County Council whose officers have worked hard to make the event such a success and feature such a wide range of organisations. No-one can argue that they haven’t had the opportunity to find out what’s happening in Alnwick. People were able to record their opinions on subjects such as plans for the cobbles, Narrowgate pedestrianisation, Bailiffgate Museum and Alnwick and Denwick Neighbourhood Plan”
Above, Alnwick Town Councillors John Humphries, Mayor Geoff Watson, Gordon Castle and Lynda Wearn were keen to engage with local people who attended the forum.
