I was listening on 87.7FM in the car outside my house, in Wallsend, North Tyneside. Driving along the coast at Tynemouth and Asda in Benton are a few other places I've picked the signal up easily enough.

Dear All

You might remember reading Paul Manns thread about his new novel "The Leek Club".

I`m going to have the pleasure of speaking to him on Thursday, on the wireless, after 5pm.

The "Leek Club" is launched on Amazon Kindle that day & is a semi-biographical look at Bedlington in the 50s.

I think we could call this a Synergy Scoop

Dear All.

Remember.

Ex Bedlingtonian Paul Mann is on Synergy Drive tomorrow night (Thurs) after 5pm, on the day his latest novel "The Leek Club" is launched on Amazon Kindle.

But beware. The "warts & all" semi auto-biographical look at Bedlington in the 50s is not the sort of book you would buy for your Granny!

We will be speaking to him from his home in Limerick USA, north of Boston.

Just go to the Bedlington Community Page, that's the one where all the topics are listed, and look for the Synergy box, right hand side, and click it. That opens a media player which should be playing SYNERGY.........

Just to say P.A.W.S. loves Synergy. thanks to all involved in the creme egg appeal (ongoing), especially Colin, the whirling dervish. Genuine local radio can really bring the town together, given a chance.

Dear All

Can I say many thanks for your support during our first broadcast.

We hope that, if you listened, you liked what you heard.

We would appreciate your feedback please. To carry forward to the next time. Because there will be a next time.

Raising funds for that starts now.

It`s only £5000 after all!

John W, Colin, Neal & John T.

Thanks Pete.

I enjoyed doing the Friday football preview with the chaps who did the reporting for the Colliers & Terriers on the Saturday.

Ofcom regs say there has to be a gap of at least 6 months between RSL broadcasts & as I said we have the small matter of raising the £5k for the licences. We started that process on Monday last.

Normal service WILL BE RESUMED.

Watch this space.

Hi John W....... how do you propose to raise the 5K

Hi Brian.

We`ll be continuing the arduous process of application form filling we`ve been doing these last 4 years, to various funding streams & wait for the replies.

Thanks for your interest from afar.

If anyone has any other funding ideas, please PM me.

It would be nice to think that all those who listened and enjoyed what they heard put their hands in their pockets to raise at least a little bit of it.

Many thanks for the kind thought ex B.

Dear All

Following the success of our first tranmission & the many letters of support received, we have decided to stage another 28 day FM broadcast.

This will happen later on this year & be subject to raising the appropriate finance of course.

Please feel free to PM me if you would care to get involved in any way.

    • 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.”
