Bedlington Morrisons R.I.P

Recommended Posts

Well Les I certainly hope it does survive, it employs over 100 people while the  Lidle stores I have been in seem to work on a skeleton staff.

I like  named brands that are not available at Lidle so I wont be doing much in the way of shopping at the new store. Morrisons or Asdas own savers  label; brands seem much cheaper than the unheard of foreign brands sold by Lidle. but I suppose it will suit some folk,

They do seem to have had a lot of bad press lately

I was only implying that Morrisons need to address their extortionate prices, a little competition should sort that out.

A win-win for the people of Bedlington I would've thought.

Also, I was unaware that such a small store such as Bedlington Morrisons employed over 100 people??? 

And please don't believe everything you read, especially from a newspaper such as The Sun.

Well Les I think the prices in Morrisons are very reasonable compared to Asda that we used to shop at, especially the butchers department that always has some sort of offer on, and as I said if you are not bothered about buying branded label's Morrisons savers range is excellent value, tins of some items as low as 10p. I wish Morrisons and its staff the best of luck for the future and hope those folks jobs are secure  

And I can assure you Les I don't believe everything I read  or hear on the news :D

Are you 100% sure about this?

    • 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.”
