Does anyone know when the March meeting is? It's scheduled for Monday but as it's Easter I'm not sure if the meeting will go ahead.

Bayardm - I am not involved with the Bedlingtonshire Local History Society but I do remember Maggie posting a 2015-16 program - see photo at the end of my message. 

There is a contact number & email address for the Secretary, Barry Mead, on the ANLHS web page :-

Association of Northumberland Local History Societies (ANLHS)

Member Societies/Groups & Organisations

Bedlingtonshire LHS

The society was founded in 1968.

Meetings are held from September to November and from January to April on the last Monday of the month at 7.30pm in Bedlington Evangelical Church.

There is no membership fee but £1 is charged for each meeting.

For further information tel. : 01670 861180

Or contact Barry Mead, Secretary by emailing [email protected]

 

However in a posting 'History Society' Maggie posted :- ".................For details of Where and What is involved phone - 01670 820088"

And within that same posting was an entry with the 2015-16 program dates with Monday 28/03/2016 scheduled as 'Blythe and Tyne Railway System - John Riley' :-

The meetings has been rescheduled for a week later Bayardm .

That means it will be on the 4th April 7:30 Coffin Chapel.

The cost per meeting has changed  and there is now a yearly charge. Not too sure of the exact details because we have been AWOL for part of this 'History Year'.

Monday 7:30 Coffin Chapel , the speaker this month is Malcolm Grady, who is an entertaining and knowledgable speaker.

Victorian Gossip is the topic .

It must be better than all the gossip about today's issues.

So stop worrying about Bedlington for one evening and see how our ancestors dealt with life.

My grandmother was born in Bedlington but our family had lived in Norfolk before that and she returned with her family while still young. I’ve not been able to find out much about why they moved either way but presume it was to find work in the mines. Can you help please?

Hopefully one, if not more, of the members will have some info on the area your family lived but as Vic says some dates + additional info etc would be useful:)

    • 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.”
