Indeed. Malcolm; As I said, I don't hold much hope, especially as the tree was refused s preservation order, but as with such things, it's good to see a community spirit prevailing. Nickaila's petition has more than 2000 names now, which is a pretty inpressive achievement over 'just a tree'. The other point I should make is that I'm 100% in favour of the store.

What a daft response Monsta! If you bother to take the time to read any of the comments from the campaigners you'll see immediately this isn't about the tree OR Lidl's, but the tree AND Lidl's. Most of us are for the new store, but would like to see if it's possible to incorporate a very beautiful and established tree into the plans. What's wrong with that? As someone working in marketing, for Lidl this is an opportunity; "Lidl's provides much needed store to run-down town and preserves much-loved ancient tree". Of course, I'm looking at it from a purely personal view; I understand they will look at it from a business point of view. At least, so it seems, we are getting them to actually look at it.

How's that daft do these people who signed the petition think the same way when there buying there living room furniture from oak furniture land. 

The answer is no like they say out of sight out of mind. they make me sick

Merc,  I think you have correctly pointed out the root system as being the real problem.  

 

 

That is likely to be the problem Malcolm, with the cost naturally being the prohibitive factor. Monsta, that doesn't really dignify a response.

If you bothered to find out the facts about the people that were campaigning to save the tree you would learn that they are not a bunch of 'whiney' (your word and spelling) people. 

The majority of them know it could be a lost cause but rather than just sit and 'whiney' (your word) on they have made the effort to try and do something they feel strongly about.

The majority are aware that it is only after the plans for the demolition of the Day Center and the building of the Lidl supermarket were passed that people became aware the tree was to be felled but by making the effort they have a slight chance of persuading Lidl to change their building plans.

The vast majority of them want the Lidl supermarket and the jobs it brings to the town.

If you bothered to do some research you should be able to formulate a constructive opinion, for or against, what some people are trying to do.

Absolutely; a lot of research has been undertaken, a lot of advice given, and a lot of people have been involved. They are, buy and large, locals who have alos been inspired by recent events that have, directly or indirectly, shown how community spirit and a show of support by those in the community can go at least some way to inspiring change and improvement. In other words, the 'get off your backside and do something rather than whining about it'. Let's have more of it, whether it's about a tree or not.

So are people hugging the other trees I.e the pretty cherry blossom trees... guess not just like they never hugged the trees down wood side, which where cut down cause they blocked the old peoples light . Or that nice white cherry tree on the corner of cambo avenue. If they where going to cut down the conker tree at the stone bridge would people hug that. No there a bunch of whinies......

I have nothing against anyone cutting down a weeping willow tree.

Are you? If you're so concerned about these trees, are you doing anything about it? What about the regeneration of the town in general? Did you get off your backside and Make a Noise last year? Or are you one of those who sits back and whinges that there's nothing in Bedlington, and leaves it to others to do something? Or are you simply apathetic about everything? Some of us actually care about local causes, what's the matter with that?

I see the proposed Lidl site has now been fenced off ready for action. 

I pass this place many times a day in my job and now all those trees look as if they are on death row.

I'm not sure I would class monstas contributions as 'fight' Brian! I think he just posts obtuse stuff to stir the pot. Still, it's good fun!

In a politically correct World it's good to have someone speaking out.

However some of our local politicians are very quick to claim things are unfair.

Present  company accepted.

A meeting where any opposition is silenced because a claim of slander can be made is not a good way of doing things.

'Working your Ticket ' is a local tradition.

Now, today is Saint George's Day and within a topic called Saint Cuthbert's School.

Anyone  wanting to 'Work their Ticket' welcome.

    • 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.”
