PCSOs Chloe Gilding and Gavin Robson have been kept on their toes delivering food bags to families in Weardale today.

The ‘It’s in the Bag’ scheme has been launched by the Weardale Area Action Partnership to help support those families who have faced difficulties during the last few months.

Every child of school age in the area is provided with a bag of essential non-perishable food items every fortnight, to help them get through the school holidays.

Officers from Stanhope NPT will continue to help delivery throughout the holidays so make sure you say hello if you see them out and about.
