Consultation Information

The Mayor

June 2016

Councillor Margaret Parker was again elected as the Mayor of Blyth at the Town Council’s meeting on the 19th May 2016. She has been a Town Councillor since 2013. Before that she was a Borough Councillor at Blyth Valley Council, where she was the Millennium Mayor. Prior to retirement, Margaret worked in the Fire Service, as well as raising a family.


January 2017

We have recently received a number of enquiries regarding the artefacts in the former Civic Centre and what will happen to them when the building is sold.
Councillors had, some time ago, raised the same concerns and it was agreed that the Town Council would take care of the items. We are liaising with Northumberland County Council to ensure the artefacts are removed safely. Updates will be given.
