That was rather sensible!

Bedlington might not have the best shopping facilities but at least we have nice places to walk the dog!

I concur with this thread.

Excellent woods and country park within walking distance! :)

Some nice views on the humford 'circular walk', and not many places left you can spot red squirrels, let alone from your back window!

My sister has red squirrels in her garden daily, she lives behind the court's next to the plantation. (beaufront park??)

Photo's to follow (if i ever get round to it! summers gonna be over before i get out with this camera!!)

Did not know they had made the pit heaps into a park, something else to have a look at when I come up there.

:D

It's true Mr Darn, they have a little park there, it's been there for years now.

At the weekends theres football on too, and I've seen kids teams playing there on a few occasions.

I went a couple of weeks ago and I saw a huge hare, I didnt realise they were so big! Then again it was sitting at the top of the hill which probably made it look even bigger!

:lol:

I saw a fox once too, mind it was dead but still...

There's lots of nice wild flowers, they dont last long though because the grass cutters come around every so often.

You should get yourself away up there sometime, when you get your camera you never know, you might even get some decent photos.

It's just pine tree's Pete, have you never been before?

No, I remember the pit heaps they were still there when I left. I have been up there regularly over the years but I can't say that I have ever noticed that they had gone.

Is the old pond still there?

Hmmm... If you mean the bright orange clarty water that runs around the bottom of the heaps, then yes, it's still there...

Otherwise it isnt there, because I'd have known what pond you meant.

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
