Website Updates

August ’23 Website Update

As you may be able to tell, I’ve revamped the All About Tynedale website, rolling out an entirely new layout and feel. This will be tweaked further in the coming weeks to fine tune the website, so it works as best it can.

As part of the updated website, the Events calendar has been fixed and reinstated. I’m looking at solutions to improve the business directory in due course.

Time constraints mean that I don’t have the ability to continually seek out information on events etc. Therefore to guarantee inclusion, I strongly recommend emailing the details to scott[at] (replacing [at] with @). I normally check this email on a weekly basis.

You can also email comments and feedback to the above address.

Once again, thanks for reading, and I hope the content of this website is useful.

Website Updates

Events Calendar Unavailable

Unfortunately, due to a glitch in the plugin used to run the events calendar page, it is not currently possible to display this feature on the website.

Pending technical investigations, this has been deactivated in order to allow the rest of the website to function correctly.

Please be assured that work is ongoing behind the scenes to resolve the issue. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.


Barclays to Close Branches

Barclays bank are planning on closing branches in both Haltwhistle and Prudhoe, leaving only a branch in Hexham. It is understood that the branch in Hexham will remain open (for now).

Those who are unable to, or prefer not to, use online banking will now have to travel to Hexham some considerable distance away (particularly for those in Haltwhistle). The only alternative is to use the limited facilities provided by the Post Office.

The closures are expected in August.

It has been brought to my attention that poor opening hours at both branches have prevented some customers using the branches due to working patterns.
