News Editors Wanted

Recommended Posts

Bedlington.co.uk isn't just for reading. It's for all sections of the community, local organisations, and local traders who employ local people to contribute to.

Individuals: Become a news editor and contribute directly to our Town's news pages. You can write about whatever you want providing it somehow relates to Bedlington people, is honest, decent, reasonably balanced, and legal. In order to improve presentation and audience your work may be tidied up before final publication. On rare occasions it may merged with other people's writings on the same subject - but full credit will always be given, and no attempt will be made to change the gist of what you are saying.

Local not-for-profit Organisations: Follow the example of our town football club and ensure that your message gets out to the only people that matter - Bedlington people! Publicise your events, you news flow, whatever!

Commercial Organisations: If you provide local employment (even if it's just self-employment) then you are just as entitled to blow your own trumpet as anyone else. We are a not-for-profit organisation ourselves and it really doesn't matter to us that someone is getting commercial benefit for free. All we ask is fair dos and that you provide reasonable informational content and not bald links to commercial material hosted elsewhere. The aim is to have your firm as an integral part of our community and not an organisation leeching from it. "How to" articles are particularly welcome. With large corporations dominating the web it's hard to get the concept of free targeted advertising over to local firms. Somehow it sounds too good to be true, or can't be worth the effort. All we can say is that if you don't your competitors will - local people will note who cares about making the effort and who doesn't. The only reason not to is if you are scared of your customers, don't care about them, or otherwise provide a substandard service.

In all cases to get started just PM me or another admin and ask for an editorial account. You need to choose a pen name which may or may not be the same as you use in the forums.

    • 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.”
