Lee NormanTrimdon Man Dies After Road Crash
Lee James Norman was driving to work on Horse Close Lane, in Trimdon Colliery, when he was involved in a head on crash with a vehicle driving in the opposite direction. The funeral will be Wednesday 28th October at 1.30 pm St Mary Magdalene’s Church, Trimdon Village.
In lieu of flowers at the funeral the family are asking for donations to the Great North Air Ambulance, whose crew tried desperately to save Lee.

Trimdon Sorting Office/Post Office
Cllr. Lucy Hovvels has spoken to the owner of the Station Road Post Office this morning (6th Oct) who confirmed that the Post Office will also be closing. The owner has been looking for some time for someone to take it over, who would need to have premises to operate from.

Cllr Lucy Hovvels spoke with the Manager at Royal Mail Hartlepool 5th Oct, when it was confirmed  that the Royal Mail sorting office in Trimdon Station will be closing very soon. Cllr. Hovvels made several points on behalf  of our communities across the Trimdons, highlighting the issue of lack of community consultation, and shared the many disappointments which locals have shared about the way this has been done.

Royal Mail  are planning for this to happen without any consultation and consideration for the local community and the impact upon our area.

A petition to oppose closure can be found in the following places;
Top Shop, Deaf Hill : Elite Hairdressers Trimdon Colliery  : D Jordans Trimdon Colliery : Pizza Shop Trimdon Grange : Sue's Store Trimdon Grange : Community Centre Trimdon Grange : Village Pizza  Trimdon  Village : Co-op  Store Trimdon Village
