History Society

Recommended Posts

The meetings are held in the Bedlington Christian Fellowship Church on the last Monday of the Month Sept To May (except Dec) at 7:30!

Our forum Meetings seem to clash

28th Oct

24th March

These meetings start at 6:30

Slight conflict of interest, maybe no one would want to go to both.

The THI event was very good !

The History Society explained about Canon Whitley being a 'Senior Wrangler'

There is a plaque in his memory in the church near the high altar.

It seems he was a friend to Charles Darwin and William Wordsworth

Put them on the town calendar - it's easy, and help is always available (just PM Malc ;) )!

BTW I've seen the future of the calendar (spanking new software in test), but my lips are sealed! :D

The slip /up is the 24th is not the last day of the month!

The History Society is to still go ahead with the 24th !

So still a clash, with the Forum meeting.

What a knowledgable audience last night.

The Colliery Rows are living memories for most of us here in Bedlington

The days of the veg plot with pigs and chickens in the garden. These days may return as the food runs out.

Next meeting is Monday the 28th April and is

Bill Saundes works at Beamish and gave us

'Food for Thought'

A Cooperative Society could be the answer for Bedlington and the future.

Why invest in multinationals !

Local individual and different.

Every town centre is the same let's make ours unique.

Maggie - Ok if I post the old programmes, and the current one, on the Bedlington FB sites? Might get some interest for the society.

    • 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.”
