Councillor Wallace - Accentuate the Positive!

Recommended Posts

Bedlington has been my hometown for over 40 years.  During this time it has changed enormously – not always necessarily for the better – but there is nowhere else I would rather live.

I have always been aware that Bedlington has many positive features, eg a fabulous, tree lined, Front Street and stunning walks along the river at Humford.

However we regularly hear of what we do not have and what we need – and I agree with many Bedlingtonians over this – but what is often played down and disregarded are the numerous good things about our town

In order to ‘accentuate the positive’ Radio Northumberland, a local community radio station, has agreed to broadcast ‘The Bedlington Show.’ This is a non-political, one hour show which highlights some of the many positive aspects of our town – and the people behind them – through music.

The first show is currently being broadcast at:

5.00 pm Friday 30 June

3.00 pm Saturday 1 July

9.00 am Sunday 2 July

10.00 am Monday 3 July

7.00 pm Tuesday 4 July

10.00 am Wednesday 5 July

You can tune in at Radio Northumberland by clicking one of the carriers at the bottom of the home page.

If you can, please listen in – and find out who is included in show one and discover their choice of music!

The presenter is working on his skills – but would very much welcome feedback and, hopefully positive, suggestions.

Normal ‘blog’ service will resume shortly, thanks for reading!

In response to requests (yes, really!), Radio Northumberland are re-broadcasting the first ‘Bedlington Show.’ The response so far way beyond expectation!

The show highlights the good things about our town and the people behind them by asking about their favourite music – and why.

So if you want to learn about Brent from La Torre or Lynne from The Chiropody and Podiatry Studio’s choice in music – or which civic dignitary picked “Funkin’ for Jamaica” as their favourite song – listen in!

The re-run will be on air at the normal times, starting Thursday 13 July:

Thursday @ 7.00 pm  - Friday @ 5.00 pm -  Saturday @ 3.00 pm - Sunday @9.00 am 

Monday @ 10.00 am  - Tuesday @ 7.00 pm - Wednesday @10.00 am

Radio Northumberland can be found at www.RadioNorthumberland.comAt the bottom of the page there are a number of carriers where you can click and listen.

Thanks for your support.

    • Northern Pride has been growing in strength since it began 10 years ago. Northumberland County Council is proud to be part of the movement, helping to break down barriers and creating a more open dialogue with members of the LGBT community.    Northern Pride took place on Newcastle Town Moor from 21st to 23rd July and Northumberland County Council was there to show support for the LGBT community. Along with flying the rainbow flag at County Hall, members of the County Council took part in the Pride parade and also held a joint stall during the weekend’s event along with colleagues from Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.    Northumberland County Council is committed to building relationships with the LGBT community. Working in partnership with local and national groups, a ‘toolkit’ has been developed to help the growing number of schools who are supporting young people who question their assigned gender identity.    Northumberland County Councillor Veronica Jones, cabinet member for Adult Wellbeing and Health, said: “Northumberland County Council is a keen supporter of Northern Pride and undertakes a range of activities to support and work with the LGBT community. Through Northern Pride we can engage directly with members of the LGBT community and showcase our services.    “Our work to increase engagement and support for the LGBT community builds upon our involvement with Northern Pride and includes: our work with schools, creating a safe working environment and supporting our LGBT staff, engaging with young people and the wider LGBT community. We also aim to increase the diversity of our workforce by providing information on our apprenticeship opportunities,  jobs and careers  at our Pride stall”
