My name is Steve Nichol and I took up the post of Neighbourhood Services Officer at Ashington Town Council in April 2013. My role is to be repsonsive to issues relating to Town Council assets and neighbourhood issues such as maintaining and improving the town's bus shelters and public seating. I previously worked for Wansbeck District Council and Northumberland County Council in similar roles and bring considerable knowledge and experience to the post.

I am keen to contribute to the physical appearance of Ashington and work with other Town Council staff as well as other partners in making residents proud to live in the town.
