Council launch consultation on future of Gateshead's Leisure Services

Gateshead Council have launched their public consultation regarding their proposed changes to leisure services in Gateshead, including the possible closure of Gateshead Leisure Centre. To give your views visit here

Ron Beadle said "We need the Council to rethink their plans. Please do take the time to fill in this consultation". 

Also, thank you to all those residents who have signed our petition calling on the Council not to close Gateshead Leisure Centre. If you haven’t had a chance to sign the petition so far, please sign here 

If you would like a 'Save Gateshead Leisure Centre' poster to display in your window please reply to this email.

Low Fell's Service of Remembrance
Low Fell's Service of Remembrance will be taking place on Armistice Day, Friday 11th November. We will gather at the Boer War Memorial from 10:40am.

Concerned about crime? Come and speak to the Police
We are holding another advice surgery with the Police this month and any resident concerned about crime is encouraged to attend. 

It will take place from 10am to 12 noon on Saturday 12 November in the community room at Low Fell Library. Just pop in at any time during these two hours to raise any concerns or ask questions. 

Daniel Duggan said "This is a good opportunity for residents to raise their concerns directly with the Police and I would encourage any residents with concerns about crime or questions to attend. I want to thank the Police for agreeing to attend this event".
Kells Lane Swing
Residents may have noticed that one of the swings in Kells Lane Park has been removed.  Rest assured the Council has removed this deliberately as the chains had been worn down.  They shall be replacing it.
