Welcome to Sandhoe Parish in the county of Northumberland. Situated just north of Hexham in the beautiful Tyne Valley, the parish consists of four hamlets, Oakwood, Anick, Sandhoe and Beaufront Woodhead. Its northern boundary touches Hadrian’s Wall and its southern the River Tyne. It encloses a largely rural area including the Beaufront Castle Estate, but there is an area of significant industrial use on the flood plain of the River Tyne which includes the Egger UK Ltd chipboard factory. We are very fortunate to have a thriving school, Beaufront County First School which is well supported by the community, and a focus for Parish events. Although the population is scattered there is a strong sense of community and local pride in this area.
This site is run by your Parish Council whose aim is to represent the local community and work towards providing useful facilities while maintaining the character of the natural environment within the Parish. We hope you will visit this website for information about Parish Council Meetings and Minutes, Parish news and events but also find things of interest about local government, Planning Applications, local businesses and local history.
The Parish Council meets 4 times a year with the Annual meeting usually occurring in mid April or May. You are always welcome to attend our meetings and if you need to contact us the Clerk of the Council is Bill Grigg [griggbill(at)gmail(dot)com] tel. 01434 634397 or contact details for each councillor can be found on the Parish Councillors’ webpage.
Parish Council notices are posted on the notice board next to the post box at Oakwood and on the noticeboard at Sandhoe. Both notice boards are unlocked and open to residents to post notices relating to activities or events within the Parish of Sandhoe. The contents of the notice boards are monitored regularly and the Council retains an editorial right to remove inappropriate content without reference to whoever has posted it. At times it is necessary (by law) for the Council to display statutory notices and at such times the council reserves the right to prioritise the content of the display.
