Christmas Lights

Recommended Posts

Another brilliant show of illuminations in Bedlington again. My thanks and congratulations to whoever is responsible. We have had friends visiting us from the South of the country recently who were quick in expressing their delight at such a good show.

On behlaf of council thanks tomtom.

I have only just recently been castigated for the poor show in Bedlington this year? I suppose some people will only be satisfied if it looks like Blackpool.

Mal you know what a great man once said .....you can keep some of the people happy for some of the time

 

                                                                         but you can't keep all of the people happy all of the time

 

                                                                         cheers Brian :wtf:

I watched the lights being switched on! we saw lots of people going to the Market Place, (even tried to follow it on the radio) we don't see a lot of the decorations but what we see are very nice, the people responsible should be very proud!

I watch the camera lots, see all the illegal parking while dashing into the shops! see the punters popping out the pub for a fag! (one often accompanied by a little dog on a leash!) see the early morning shop deliveries, I'm really surprised how much traffic there is! I used Google Earth to identify the shops that are so popular!

5.30am Malcom, thats just  1/2 hour before our evening news then off to bed! 

 

The down side is I can't receive the camera on my Toshiba but only on my iPad, which recently logs me out every time I leave! (its a royal pain logging in every time)

Well done camera and well done Christmas lights!

I think they look very pretty. Mind, I'm probably seeing double by the time they come on.

I think a cracking job has been done with the lights in Bedlington this year. I think some people moan because they are not strung across the street like they are in Morpeth ....... err have you seen how wide Bedlington front street is hinny  ? 

 

A few years ago I drove through Morpeth with a tall trailer on and pulled a few strings of lights down. They had hung them too low. Anything less that 16' 6" has to be marked with the height. Just as well it was early morning and not many people / traffic about .

      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."
