BLYTH BUS STATION 

The Town Council and Northumberland County Council, through the Town Forum, have been in discussion with Arriva regarding the maintenance of the bus station area and during this time the Bloom group, Blyth Community Volunteers, approached the Town Council as they were keen to take it on as a project.  The Town Council are responsible for the bus shelters and seats and these have all been recently refurbished, however, Arriva are responsible for the maintenance of the planted areas. 

After discussing this with our County Council Partnership colleagues it has been agreed with Arriva that the Partnership Team will cut back and clear the planted areas ready for Blyth Community Volunteers to take over with the support, where required, of the Town Council and Partnership.

- Work was carried out on Wednesday 29 January and Blyth Community Volunteers have since taken over. Fantastic work.
