25 July 2018County Council library
Did you know that the County Council library visits the Rede Valley and stops at both Rochester and Byrness?
Please see attached timetable when it visits and the place / time it stops. Unfortunately not many people seem to know about the service and if not used it there is a risk it will be lost.
If you are not a member yet then consider the benefits to you and your family by joining. Please also see the link below that details the services provided.

23 May 2018Battle of Otterburn - Projct launch 24 June @ RTC Sports Centre
I am emailing to let you know that we are about to launch our Revitalising Redesdale Battle of Otterburn: Conflict in the Landscape project, which will be exploring the story of the Battle of Otterburn. This project will have lots of volunteering opportunities, including researching historical records and assisting with investigative fieldwork such as metal detecting and excavations. We are holding a launch event on Sunday 24th June, 2.00-4.30pm in Otterburn at the RTC Sports Centre- see attached poster. This is a free event and will include talks about the project and what we hope to uncover as well as a guided walk to the battlefield site. There will also be the opportunity to sign up as a volunteer for this project.
Thanks very much,
