Like The new shop fronts on the main street are looking great, I've just noticed the similarity to the Wharton in the old days!!

BIG YES they are starting to look a lot more impressive than it used to (apart from that bliddy eye sore of a school :whistle: ).........is it going to be done all the way down the street past the North ?

It has went pass the north i think because i'm sure Chinchilla's has had their shop front done, but i agree with Foxy all the shop front that have been done up look great a big thanks to all the guys involved :thumbsup: . Mind I'm not a fan of the Purple and Cream on R&S Convenience, i would have like to see a crimson red and cream but that's just my opinion. As you can guess reading this Purples not one of my favourite colours .

Done up and stitched up. Better looking shop fronts, better rents and Cooncil rates! FFS!

'Yes pal, you want one of these units?' Even though we got a grant and it cost us NOWT 'Ya ganna pay through the nose if ya want to rent one pal.' 'Just look at how good it looks!'

The BIG THREE must be rubbing their hands with GLEE!

Sorry I should have said The BIG FOUR. the Cooncil are involved as well!

Seemed queer looking at Jonstones shoe shop and seeing a To Let sign in the window while driving past today. That must have to have been the longest continuing business there, I cant remember it being anything else. Is the Ashington shop still open?. Is Clive Jonstone still alive? I was noticing the work going on at our old house behind the shops, you could see in as you walk up the cut by the Tavern.

I`ve bought shoes from Bedlington Johnson`s for 20 odd years. The people in the shop were always brilliant.

The shop in Ashington is still in existance & so is Clive, who gets my trade direct now.

You are indeed correct about Chinchillas and the purple and cream/yellow are the corporate colours of the stores suppliers I believe but you are right its a bit garish :dribble:

Mrs Johnson, Clives mother, was our landlady when we lived at the market place. We always got our shoes there as kids, she would not let us try a pair of shoes on until she had measured our feet properly, then it was always Clarkes shoes. Clive would often call down the yard with a big bag of sweets for us and the kids next door. I might just call in to the Ashington shop to see him.

    • 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.”
