On 30th June Middridge Parish Council held a Chairman’s Dinner in honour of ex-Parish Councillors Anne and John Clarke, who decided not to stand for re-election in May after 34 years of service to the Community. Speeches were made by Harold Howe, the current Chairman, and Aycliffe North & Middridge Ward County Councillor John Clare, who presented them both with a Memorial Gift donated by Middridge Parish Councillors and staff.
