Happy New Year

Among all the uncertainty that each New Year brings, can I wish all the readers of this blog a particularly good one this year.

It has been a weird year politically, but things can only get better,. no …... things may well get worse , but hey ho, it was what the (narrow) majority wanted …


Who knows what Brexit will bring, or even if we can avoid leaving the EU at all, but, whatever happens I'd like to wish everyone, a happy, peaceful and prosperous New Year.

See you in 2019 ….

In the immediate area for Blyth both Asda ( the large store) Car Park  and the Ranch Car Park will have recycling points from 2nd to 9th January

The full list of Northumberland's tree recycling points is here:-

Blyth & Northumberland Christmas and New Year bin arrangements


Northumberland County Council have published the arrangements for bin collections over Christmas and New Year

For the week beginning 24th December ( a dry recycling week ) collections are put back two days.  So for example our usual collection on a Tuesday will be on Thursday 27th

For the week beginning 31st December ( a general refuse week) collections are put back a day, so our collection is put back a day from the Tuesday to Wednesday 2nd.

HOWEVER, I think that the Monday collections those weeks ( 24th December and 31st December ) will be unaffected.

If in doubt please check with Northumberland County Council. You can put your house number and postcode into the NCC website at:-
