“Our high street is the heart of the community” says Angie Scott, Labour Candidate for Prudhoe North
It’s been a tough year for Prudhoe Front Street but the traders have tried their hardest to weather the storm and support our community. They have provided an invaluable service to many of us during lockdown, and have been a lifeline to the most vulnerable. I would like to say a huge thank you for their ongoing support, we could not have got through the pandemic without your support. As a Prudhoe Town Councillor I see the potential of Front street in welcoming new businesses, and the need to protect current businesses. If elected as County Councillor for Prudhoe North I will endeavour to keep the heart of the high street beating with investment and fresh ideas”.
“Our local towns are looking tired and in need of regeneration” says Allan Hepple,
Shadow Cabinet member for Housing and Planning (NCC)
“Too often the Council’s strategic plans and policies are not joined up and are not tailored to the local issues and needs in our communities. If elected, the Labour Party’s ‘Town Plans’ for Northumberland, in places from Prudhoe to Berwick, will ensure that all these policies are reflected in a local plan which addresses the local issues, context and needs, and deliver a vision that those living and working there want to see. We will ensure local people, local businesses, local councillors, and public bodies like the police are involved in drawing up the vision for their own town centres”.
Angie Scott is the local council candidate for Prudhoe North.
Says Angie: “I am delighted to have been selected to be the Labour candidate for Prudhoe North in the Northumberland County Council elections in May 2021.
I am totally passionate about Prudhoe North, and so proud of Prudhoe, as I was brought up in Halfway, and have lived in Prudhoe all my life.
I am a Prudhoe Town Councillor, and see first-hand the issues we face. Being a Councillor is the greatest privilege. I will lead a strong campaign to fight for the residents of Prudhoe North, showing communities what a difference having a Labour County Council can make. I can see how much needs to be done here to reverse the Conservative Northumberland County Council’s and the Conservative government’s reign of neglect.
COVID has had a devastating effect on the community, and we must support those who are most at risk as we rebuild our society and economy, especially the vulnerable, young people, those in precarious employment and the unemployed.”
