    This news site is run as a news blog by an individual who finances it. This is a non commercial non profitable blog.

    The purpose is a to make local news available for non commercial use.

    It relies on News feeds from Councils, BBC, Police, Local Blogs, Local news.In order to add extra content and services our external links and displays are free.

    As the blog is to promote local news free and is non commercial non profit making network it would not be possible to pay Press Association Commercial licence fees for content because it is not set up to make a financial gain.

    A recent court case agrees commercial users can be charged for content that is resold for profit. However non commercial blogs etc would not be charged.

    However it appears some press associations are getting rather greedy and are chasing private bloggers for fees if they are using some local newspaper feeds.

    They appear to be using a debt collection business called Buchanan Clark & Wells of Glasgow who are sending made up charges for use of copyright material.

    If you are a private blogger having the same problem I would like to hear from you.

    If you are a online newspaper or press association your comments would also be welcome.

Latest 15 Press Releases at Durham County Council
  • Academy development brings boost to local economy
    The construction of a new secondary school in Consett is providing a huge boost to the local economy. Work is well underway on the development of Consett Academy, at the town’s Belle Vue site, and the project is already bringing benefits to the town and the wider region. To date, contracts worth in excess of £5.7m have been awarded to County Durham firms as part of the overall project, creating jobs and apprenticeship opportunities as well as benefiting local companies and workers. It is expected that during the construction process around 14,000 tonnes of concrete will be used, which is being supplied by Cemex, which has a site in Consett. Contracts have been awarded to other County Durham companies for services and products such as groundworks and landscaping, fencing and scaffolding. A number of local people have been employed on the project and many more are expected to be taken on or offered training opportunities, including apprentices and students on work experience. Contractors have a target to recruit and train 45 apprentices during the course of the construction, with many coming from Consett and the surrounding area. Some of the workforce, employed by contractor Carillion, are from outside of the area and will be using local hotel and bed and breakfast accommodation, bringing a further boost to the town’s economy. The project is also providing economic benefits for the wider region. The frame for the building has been made using 1,000 tonnes of raw steel, which was manufactured in Teesside and fabricated in Sunderland. Cllr Ossie Johnson, Cabinet member for children and young people’s services at Durham County Council, said: “The development of Consett Academy is already bringing a number of benefits to the town and the wider region, bringing investment and creating employment and training opportunities. “And when the development is complete, the new facilities will offer unrivalled educational opportunities for young people in the town.” The academy is part of a £43m development, which also includes a new leisure centre and swimming pool. The new leisure centre is due to open its doors next summer and pupils at the new academy are due to start lessons in their new building from September 2015.
  • Mobile gym heads for Langley Park

The WOW gym will be at the rear car park of Langley Park Primary School from Monday 1 September until Friday 19 December.

  • Share the moment at Durham Streets
    Visitors to this weekend’s Durham Streets Summer Festival are being encouraged to share their favourite moments on social media. The event, organised by Durham County Council, will see a host of international, award-winning street acts entertaining crowds in Durham City, Bishop Auckland and Barnard Castle. Audience members are being asked to get involved by sharing their pictures or 10-word reviews of the acts on Facebook and Twitter. Everyone who mentions @StreetsDurham or uses the hashtag #Streets 2014 in their tweet, or posts their picture or review on the Durham Streets Summer festival Facebook page will be entered into a competition to win a festival t-shirt. Festival-goers in Durham City on Saturday and Sunday are also being asked to vote for the Durham BID People’s Choice award while they are out and about enjoying the performances – just look for the Streets staff handing out nomination forms. The audience’s favourite act will be crowned at the end of the Durham City leg of the festival on Sunday at about 5.15pm. Festival organisers are also keen to hear what people think of the weekend’s entertainment and are encouraging audiences to visit the festival website after their visit to complete an on-line survey. The feedback received will be used in the planning of future festivals and everyone who completes a feedback form will be entered into a prize draw to win £100 of shopping vouchers. This year’s performers include street clown Pedro, family favourite Maynard Flip Flap and Fatt Matt, who won the Durham Streets People’s Choice Award in 2012 as well as Streets newcomer The Space Cowboy. Holder of 29 Guinness World Records, including the most blow torches extinguished on the tongue, the Space Cowboy is also the only person to have won the Street Performance World Championships more than once. The Space Cowboy is taking a break from an 11-week run in London to bring his death-defying stunts to Durham. He said: “Variety is the spice of life so I thought it would be nice to take a break from the show to take part in a street festival and I’m very much looking forward to visiting Durham.  “I’ll be doing some sword-swallowing, chainsaw juggling and I have a three-metre high unicycle which I’ll be riding while juggling blindfold. It’s going to be dangerous, exciting and a lot of fun.” On Saturday, 23 August and Sunday, 24 August, performers will be taking over the pavements, bridges and squares of Durham City between 11.30am and 5pm. As well as the traditional circle shows in the Market Place and Millennium Place, there will be new BID Buskers spots, supported by Durham BID, on Elvet and Framwellgate bridges. This year, the Streets festival visits Bishop Auckland for the very first time, with some of the funniest, most awe-inspiring, terrifying and spectacular shows audiences will ever witness on a pavement happening in the Market Place. Supported by Bishop Auckland Town Council, performances take place between 11am and 3pm on Saturday, 23 August. Streets also returns to Barnard Castle this year after an extremely successful first visit to the town in 2013. Audiences are encouraged to grab a picnic and enjoy the entertainment at Scar Top, where there will be juggling, unicycling, acrobatics, banter, wit and even fire as well as circus skills school. Barnard Castle Streets starts at noon on bank holiday Monday, 25 August and is supported by Barnard Castle Town Council. For more information, visit www.durhamstreetsof.co.uk

  • Caravan parked on busy road, 20th August
    This is an especially busy road which has been reduced to a single lane due to a homeowner storing their caravan off-premises. To compound the issue it has been placed directly in front of a bus stop. I note the existence of a driveway and garage which should offer a suitable alternative. This road is part of my daily commute, in the last three weeks I've witnessed two near-misses involving oncoming traffic.
