When I look at the attendance records of some it makes me wonder why they want to be councillors.

  I also wonder if anyone who voted for them feel it has been a vote wasted.

I see what you mean, Foxy. I wonder why they bother to explain that one particular councillor "is not a member of the Services Committee" and thereby excusing his absence. Given his attendance rate at full council meetings, he doesn't appear to be a member of the full Council either. Any possible explanation would have been better placed under that table. In saying that I'm assuming that his absence isn't caused by some legit. reason such as ill health.

In other matters, well done Malcolm and supporting cast. I think Bedlington has stepped upp to the spoon very nicely the past few years. It's starting to look really nice and while appearances are not the be all and end all of everything they do go an awful long way in helping to promote a place. Malcolm, why are you joining us 'commoners' again? You've only just got your mayor's hat nicely warmed up. Why discard it now?

In a nutshell Canny Lass, the dummy was spit out two years ago when control of the council was taken from Labour. I could write a book, better still I've got a video of a meeting where one of theirs is being told how to vote by another of their own. Watching them is certainly better entertainment than Emmerdale on a Thursday night!  BTW they do visit this website although they do not comment, Guilty as charged ! ;)

Canny lass...........

 

Ta......... but you will appreciate the time and effort it takes to get things done especially in the public sector realm.  

 

I have meetings and phone calls and email to do just about everyday and a full time job to hold down.  

 

Luckily I work mostly at weekends but that means I don't get the nice things to do like the Fair/Picnic opening etc,.,.,.,.,.,.

 

Unlike the rest I have never taken a penny in expenses, I've changed holidays over to get to attend important meetings and put the council before my private life for 2 years.  I just need to rebalance.................

What you've actually done is put 'the people of Bedlington' before your private life for two years. I hope it's been appreciated. However, I understand the need to take a break. Would a week-end off not do the trick?

CL, The fella that allegedly represents your old "patch" has become known locally as the invisible man, I've no doubt he'll be getting the bandages on soon to walk the streets and begin the election campaign.Total contribution to the town in four years has been to  fund a bus shelter. He set up a facebook page for his electorate but he just recently banned a number of people from the page for asking questions that he doesn't like. No need for me to tell you which political group he's affiliated to, I'm sure you'll get it in one!

I am being convinced to go for a county seat.............  

Just for a second I read that as 'country' seat! You wouldn't believe the picture that flew into my head.

I'm sure you'd give your all at county level as well. Some people are made like that.

Shame the St Bedes parking campaign was an abject failure; the same idiot parents park where they want, just so little Poppy/Oscar don't have to get their shoes covered in Bedlington grime.

    • 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.”
