Grace Darling, now she's truly a Northumbrian heroine.

Keith m8 try this link for a super song on Grace. This group "Sawdustjacks is superb. We have been given permission to use their historic heritage songs for future publications.

Have a look everyone and enjoy

Beautiful song, she surely was a true Northumbrian.

'Tender Hearted'

It would have been good to know her, I am sure some of her ancestors are still around.

There was a Darling family in Bedlington when I was a kid, I cant remember much about them except for a daughter Audrey who was often seen out and about . She had mental health issues (as far as I remember) and she would wander about with her head tilted to one side. I don't know if there is any of the Darling family left in Bedlington now.

Keith, there was a Barry Darling at the Woody School in my bro's class. I think he had two sisters, Christine? and ????. My mam knew their mother from the Glove Factory at Barrington - I think. I'll get back to you on that.

Maz O Connor has a track, on her soon to be released folk album, about Emily Wilding Davison!

The album is called 'The Willowed Light'

    • 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.”

      A reminder for forum users that the Sixtownships website has been updated for June.
      http://www.sixtownships.org.uk
      We have updated our archives with letters from soldiers on the front-line during World War One.
      The letters make fascinating reading and come from the Bedlington, netherton, barrington, tyneside, choppington, alnwick, west sleekburn and other areas.
      For those interested have a good read, you never know you may have family from the past having wrote letters.
      Read how the use of gas by the Germans affected our soldiers, how villages were destroyed, acts of bravery, and much more, including the ultimate sacrifice, death.
      You will never get a better example of life in the trenches and with it written by those who witnessed it.
      No one alive today to tell the story, but these letters tell the story.
      100 years next year since it all began and we aim to add more letters to our archives in the future.
      If you have any letters you would like to share from loved ones from the war, put them on our forum and we will transfer them to our archives.
