Struggling families across Northumberland are set to benefit from new coronavirus funding which will help put food on the table.
Northumberland county councillors will be able to provide Covid-19 -related support into their communities through a number of grants worth up to £2,000.
Families in need will be able to access vital help such as food parcels or vouchers through recipient organisations such as town and parish councils and community groups.
Leader of Northumberland County Council, Glen Sanderson said: "We recognise and understand the real difficulties and hardship that Covid is causing for some of our residents, and we are doing all we can to help them, and we will continue to do so.
"From the very start of the pandemic, through our Northumberland Communities Together initiative, we have been connecting with residents in need, seven days a week to ensure they receive help and support to keep them safe and well.
"In addition to this, we have just expanded the scope of our Members Small Grant Scheme to reflect the challenges local communities and groups are facing around the current pandemic."

Sketches by Mrs A E MacLeod
I grew up in the knowledge that the monks fled from Lindisfarne and the Vikings first and then again from the Normans.
The date Saturday the 12th Dec 1069 is mentioned.
I am attempting to reproduce the page but it is only a hand held.
Can anyone shed some light on the work going on at the old elliots garage site? Someone told me that there is going to be a old folks home built there, then someone else told me that the planning permission for that fell through.
I have searched the council websites for info but they havent come up with much as yet.
If it is going to be a residential home, which company is it for? I can find the name of the building contractors but not the actual company who they are building it for ( if they are building anything at all!)
Any info would be very much appriciated.
Do you think we could recreate Bedlington Front Street from years ago by using old pics ?
I think it would be worth doing.
Malcolm , i reckon it would be good for your project. What do you think.
here's two pics , we could add on to these and re-create the street if we could get enough pics from that time
