  1. Past hour
  2. If anybody is wondering what all the racket is today it's the big guns at Otterburn. Will also be heard over Saturday and Sunday... https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/588143/20170131_PWN_.csv/preview
  3. Last time I glanced at the Johnston Press accounts they were akin to those of Greece (but without a compliant ECB) - something like £250M of debt which there is no possible way of repaying. This month's ABC circulation figures for their titles are also a disaster, and the group can't struggle on much longer. They've likely already lost the journos who ensured some sort of political balance. A yesterday post from the ADVFN financial board says it all:
  4. There are also 3 full page promotional pages for the Development of Morpeth, Active Northumberland and How Arch Works.....I wonder who pays for these as it may woo the undecided Northumberland voters in the run up to an election.
  5. Today
  6. It was my understanding that the owners of the News Post Leader were in financial trouble so it's certainly possible I suspect it is simply more to do with an upcoming election?
  7. Have Arch now taken over the News Post Leader? Readers Views in this weeks New Post Leader appear to have been loaded with Arch and Labour Party promotional material for the local elections in May. The first letter is from Peter McIntyre chief executive of Arch who praises their work in Bedlington.....The second letter is from Alyson Wallace local Labour councilor who compliments and congratulates Arch. She also mentions that her hope is to be re-elected in May. The third letter is from a retired business woman from Worcestershire who worked in the energy industry. She has been looking to buy a retirement home in the region and praises Northumberland County Council and Arch for their development plans for Cambois…..The woman believes that the local Conservative Party have plans to scrap Arch so she will not now make a decision about moving to the area until after the May elections! The fourth and final letter relates to Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs) for the NHS. Northumberland, Tyne Wear Trust have said that they will require capital funding for to deliver such plans and describe how millions of pounds are needed for a backlog of repair work…..Perhaps Arch could assist with this so that Northumberland could use capital funding for Social Care.
  8. Thanks. I'll add them to the directory but flag it for review. Incidentally there are far more businesses on the Front Street than I had imagined.
  9. I've also heard this but am not sure if it is true. I think it is still trading, however.
  10. I heard that the Barrington Arms had been bought by Arch. Does anybody know if they're still trading and what the future plans are?
  11. Yesterday
