August News Headline Story

Community energy scheme goes LIVE!

You can register your interest from August 5th to 13th October, on the website or at a local drop-in where we will have computers online and volunteers on hand to give you all the help you need.


As has been explained in previous articles, registering for the energy switch commits you to absolutely nothing. There is a tendering process and when the offer comes through, you can then choose to take it up for a year, if you think it is worth it. So go to Energy Switch or, if you would like us to take you through the process at a drop-in session (don’t forget your energy bills!) we look forward to seeing you there.


Sedgefield Energy Switch drop-in help sessions:

Tuesday 5th August: 2 - 4pm & 6 - 7.30pm at Sedgefield Council Offices

Saturday 9th August: 10am - late afternoon at Sedgefield Show

Tuesday 12th August: 2 - 4pm & 6 - 7.30pm at Fishburn Community Centre

Tuesday 19th August: 2 - 4pm & 6 - 7.30pm at Mordon Village Hall

Please bring your electricity and gas bills for the last 12 months.

Look out for additional events, which we will organise if there is demand.

News Headlines

FARMERS MARKET: We have a new stall this month: North Wall Charcuterie joining the market; sounds brilliant!


North Wall produces cured meats in the  North Pennines to authentic recipes. We use only the best raw materials to create excellent quality, great tasting British charcuterie. Our range is limited, as we hand craft each  and every item, over many weeks. Curing meats the traditional way is time consuming but essential in bringing our customers the best possible taste and texture.

See, for more information about their products.


We also have the Art group showing their work and beside us on the green the Sedgefield Veterans will be busy.
