Slaley Show

It was a sad task to have to put “Cancelled” notices  on our roadside signs, made even more awful by finding that Highways had taken down our signs. as luck would have it Anne Collier of Collier Framing happened to see our signs in the Highways depot and alerted Stella who was able to retrieve them. Many thanks to Anne. Highways have no obligation to notify us of their actions and our signs would just have been destroyed: a grievous cost to the Show....

Illegal Killing of Buzzards in our area

There have been two illegal killings of buzzards reported recently in Hexhamshire and Blanchland. We have no idea who killed these birds, though logically it is someone with a licenced shotgun. The killers are breaking the law, tarnishing the reputation of our area and, most importantly, needlessly killing our precious native wildlife. We are appealing for information on these crimes. People can come forward confidentially and use the RSPB’s Raptor Crime Hotline on 0300 999 0101 or contact the...
