Make a noise for Bedlington.

Recommended Posts

Edible Kippers.

Seahouses smoked.

Looking at the Morpeth Neighbourhood Plan is interesting.

All outlying areas are included.

It has been in the making for a few years .

I wonder if our council tax is helping to make the plan possible.

Councillor Sambrook is

'Governance and Planning' at NCC.

He represents Pegswood, it might be interesting to see how much money has been spent on his area.

Do we include new link road to Pegswood and Ashington!

Cllr Sambrook may have a Bedlington connection. I went to Bedlington High school with a Lad called Sambrook who is possibly his brothet

I would like to know what our County Councillors and Councillors in the wider area of Bedlington / Bedlingtonshire have done with regard to the Core Strategy and our Town / Shire.

An investigation needs to be conducted into who attends meetings . ( Locally and at County level)

Basically do they represent us in Bedlington or themselves.!

What working groups do they 'sit on' and what money they receive for the privilege!

The question of money is always difficult but we need answers.

Where has the money gone?

The Rates we pay are considerable ,given the size of the Shire.

Money from new houses being built.

Our taxes Locally and Nationally

If consideration is given to five million being spent on Bedlington, ( routine maintenance or capital spend ) then what other issues can we take into account.

We see so very little progress.

Morpeth's Plan should be similar to ours.

The population of Morpeth ,it seems, is about 14,000 and. Pegswood about 2,000.

How does that compare with Bedlingtonshire given our lack of facilities.

Sometimes it is the little things that show the real picture.

This is a picture of the new or refurbished toilet in Morpeth between the Telford Bridge and the library.

Quality even down to the doors.

Further to my post above these are our paid representatives on the NCC.

Terry Johnstone West Bedlington
(He got a mention on the comedy night / Kai Humphries and School)
Valerie Tyler East Bedlington
Alyson Wallace Central Bedlington
John James Gobin Sleeknurn
David Ledger Choppington
Julie Foster Stakeford.

Lots of people but what have they ever done for us in Bedlington. ( to quote Monty Python)
Do they bother to turn up for meetings.
What expenses do they claim?

Basically why do we suffer from such a lack of facilities.
To move forward we may , sadly, have to look back.
What is needed is an independent audit of all years from the 70's onward.
The figures quoted about the five million are misleading.
We need transparency.

Central Goverment are scrutinised , the time has come for Local Scrutiny!.

Surely If everything has been done correctly then these people will be proved to be above and beyond reproach.

This is not about party politics and individuals.
It is about a town with nothing and nothing to loose.
Not even a toilet.
'Pot to p**s in'

I'm no oil painting myself but that Council dude in the chronicle link looks like a beaver.

 

Apologies to Mr Ledger in advance if he frequents this forum but if you do, can you please clarify if you are of North American or Eurasian variety.

    • 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.”
