If you ring from a mobile your call will ping from the nearest mast, eg. if you are in Cornhill Village, the nearest mast is in Scotland. Therefore the call will be answered by Police Scotland. Whether phoning by land line or mobile, if you are in Northumberland, always ask for Police Northumbria. In an emergency, Police Scotland may attend if they are nearest, until Police Northumbria arrive to take over.
Any delay caused to calls on the Northumberland side of the Border are due to the area code 01890 and TD postcodes which operate on both sides of the Border.
The non-emergency number 101 will give a recorded message asking which Police Force you wish to contact. You will then be put through to the correct one.
Police Officer Dan Perry 281 is still the officer operating in the local area, and can be contacted by email on: Daniel.Perry.firstname.lastname@example.org
The Home Library Service will deliver books directly to anyone who can no longer visit a library independently.

The Parish Council continues to carry out litter picking on the two main routes This is mainly done by the parish councillors and clerk, but local residents are welcome to join the team. We document a risk assessment for each session, and wear high viz vests. New ones have been obtained bearing the words “Parish Council Volunteer”, and the cost of these has kindly been donated by Cornhill Village Shop. Each time we do a litter pick we fill at least a dozen black dustbin bags, most of the litter having been thrown from passing vehicles. You would be surprised what we pick up!
Details from the parish clerk – email@example.com or phone: 01890 820501.
