Fields need protection

It is deeply concerning how many new houses are springing up in the Newsham and Blyth area.

The reason Northumberland is a joyful place to live is the scenery, wildlife and nature.

I fear that the fields between Newsham and Seaton Sluice may be next.

These fields provide a breathtaking view, a local place to take peaceful walks – an important aspect of mine and many others’ lives, as well as being home to many plants and animals.

If anything can be done to prevent more fields from being destroyed to make way for yet more houses, I would like to know so I can help in any way I can.
