Sorry Admin

Don't worry about it Maggie, we don't normally allow him to interact with other people on the forum!!

Being a bit of a townie myself and originating from the more modern society of Newcastle I have heard a few things since moving up this way that have made me go :unsure: :blink::unsure:

Can't think of any off the top of my head but I will listen to the missus next time she is speaking to her mother and sister. I generally switch off when they get together.

Well done Keith.

Anyone heard the word 'kist' to describe the top of the leg where it meets the body.

Keep it clean.

Bedlington History Society is the last Monday in the month at The Coffin Chapel.

Last night was the English Language with reference to Northumbria.

It seems we may have had an important part to play.

Well done Keith.

According to the Northumbrian Language Society it means a strong box.

With thanks to Janet and her team at Ashington.............

"Ashington Community Development Trust has opened a new retail unit on the ground floor of the Central Arcade, next to the Nisa supermarket. We chose the name "The Deputy's Kist” for this retail outlet because it acknowledges the history and tradition of the Town and reflects the treasure trove of products and services available.

For those of our readers who may not be familiar with the word "kist”, the origin can been traced back to 1300 and the Middle English "kiste”, which is derived from the Old Norse, 'kista' (chest). More recently, "kist” has been used to describe a store of money or treasure, e.g. a kist of silver (1816). The word "kist” is still in use today, as a descriptive term for the mine deputy's work station or desk, where he would keep tools and papers."

Maybe the word should have been Lisk. Trial and error.

Strangely my Grandmothers generation used to decide each week whether they were ' in the band or out' basically to describe arguments and disagreements.

Either way thanks to everyone, who has so effectively found out information.

'In the band or out'

A good talking point

Obviously we are all in the band this week.

Fighting injustice!

Guess it is table 25 at The Red Lion!

Pity it is not a round table.

Where is King Arthur when you need him.

There is a Northumbrian folk tale about him asleep in our hills waiting to be woken at our time of greatest need.

Bamburgh is supposed to be the castle of Lancelot.

We could claim the legends for our own.

Forget Cornwall, Northumbria was/is the place to be.

There is a song chorus is:-

It's the company makes the feast'

Guess what I am saying is the people make our area the best of places.

The weather, dialect and shared history of hardship makes life special and we all need to be grateful for our lot.

Joke required

"Wor Geordie has a pigeon a pigeon a pigeon

It flew in the morning it flew in the night and when it came home it was covered in---------

Back to the beginning

Sorry to anyone who does not know the tune or song

Just for a swift half and the company.

In my Dads day it was the Sun Inn and the darts team.

Still have the idea that women are barred from the bar.

Club rules apply!

Rest days are Tuesday and Thursday.

The company is important.

      Police are investigating a Bedlington care home where inspectors say some elderly residents weren't kept safe.
      Medicines had allegedly gone missing at Baedling Manor Care Home, while the local authority was called in to monitor the home's safeguarding arrangements.
      The home's 49 residents "did not always experience safe care and treatment", inspectors from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) said.
      The CQC said it had launched an inspection after being contacted with concerns about "safeguarding people, staffing, recruitment, medicines, infection control, consent, complaints and the governance of the service".
      Downgrading the home, run by Alcyone Healthcare, from 'Good' to 'Requires Improvement', the report said: "People were not always safeguarded from the risk of harm. Incidents were not reported or recorded properly, and action was not always taken to address matters.
      "The home was placed into organisational safeguarding by the local authority and there were police investigations in progress."
