Explosion At Choppington Colliery

Recommended Posts

I just lost a story that I spent a half hour typing in,about a bad accident  on a face at Choppington B pit,in around 1963,where a cutterman called Jimmy Prime was badly injured after being crushed by his coalcutter which danced oot from the cut and squeezed the life oot of him after it pushed him up against a hydraulic face chock.

He miraculously survived and recovered after a hospital stay.

A real canny fella was Jimmy.

Any relation to you James neil?..if he is still with us,he might remember young Wilma wi thi lang hair and played the geeuuu-gaa!!

That's happened to me a few times HPW (lost the post before getting it posted). If you start writing again in the reply box it (what you'd already written) usually comes back.

I too have been caught by the Forum's word thief in the distant past.   If I intend to write anything long here now I create it in Word (or any free text editor will do) then copy & paste it to here;  if anything goes wrong here then the original is safe in the text editor or has been saved elsewhere.  Mind, I tend not to write reams any more so just work 'live and dirty' here and run the risk (a bit like unsafe sex ... ).

    • 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.”
