The first week of the month is partnership week in Consett North.
That’s the Consett North Partnership and the Bridgehill, Benfieldside, Blackhill and Shotley Bridge Partnership which both cover parts of this county council division.
Amongst the things discussed have been the town centre improvement in Consett (including edging closer and closer to getting the clock re-installed, one of my New Year resolutions which has only twenty five days left of 2012 for fulfilment!) and the installation of speed visors in Blackhill.
I really value both partnerships as a way of hearing what (some) people think in a constructive environment, as well as getting to know residents who I would not know otherwise. If you’re interested drop me a line.
