I am so grateful to the hundreds of local people who got involved in our campaign to keep Northumberland whole. It would have been a terrible shame to lose Haltwhistle and South Tynedale. It just goes to show what we can do when we pull together.
Of the 21 local Parish Councils who responded 20 of them rejected the Commission's initial proposals. Labour members of Prudhoe Town Council where the only ones to accept the removal of South Tynedale and Haltwhistle.
