Hi Folks!

If you need a haircut,go to Todd's Barbers at the  top-end,which was formerly run by Alan and John.

You get a gud haircut,with a gud crack from Leanne,who now run's the shop,and the shop itself is a mine of interest..[no pun intended!]

Aal thi best wishes to her and hope she is there for many a year!!

Any relation to Mrs Todd who had the wet fish shop on Front Street West until the mid/late 1960's?  Pretty much the left hand side of where the TSB is today.

Noo.....!!....aa was tempted ti ask her if Sweeney was any relation,an aal,but she probably wudda thowt a meant him wi the bullnose Jag!!..[too young ti knaa owt aboot THE Sweeney!!!!]

Seriously,a worked with Her Dad a few times at Ashington pit,afore it closed,and they were our neighbours alang at Stakeford,afore a moved away 17 years ago.

Noo Ashington pit closed in 1987,so aav knaan Leanne's parents a lang time,but only found out who she was when a went ti get me hair cut,and found that she was thier Daughter...she wudda been a wee bairn when a lived alang there.

She's a real pleasant lass,gud at her job,and the walls in the shop deserve a visit even if ye dinna get ya hair cut!!

Loads of old historical pics of Bedltn,and the Dr Pit,as weel as ancient haircutting tools etc!!

Noo the time aam on heor,will the Mods please tell me why aa hev a notification that APPROVAL is required  before me post can be put up..[in another topic...]?...hev a been a bad lad sumtime?!

Wor lass thinks +18c is cold - she keeps turning the heating up and over the recommend level, 21c, for OAPs !! Iv'e told her if she feels cold to stop lounging and dust vigorously to warm herself and the room up.

It's getting late and I'm still waiting for me 10 o'clock with ginger snaps:mellow:

Have you tried shortening the chain to the kitchen stove? She's obviously being allowed to move too far away from it.

I did ask her to CL but she hasn't found the time to do it, yet:huh: perhaps after she has finished making a fresh batch of soup, for freezing, and the prepared and served lunch she might just have time before she washes up and settles down, before supper :D

Looking forward to xmas, she might just get some time saving device that has a ginger snap alarm fitted!

It's run by a lad caaled Gary,and even though a wasn't buying owt,a just wanted sum info,he was real pleasant and sociable,and gave me the time of day wi sum gud advice,even though he's phone was ringing,he let me finish wat aa was asking him.

Aal be gaan ti him when a need any plumbing bits and bobs...as ye dae...!

Well recommended!

Noo,just this afternoon,a went ti Swarland Motor Parts,doon Glebe Road,up from Leanne Todd's Barber shop,ti collect a parcel delivery by UPS,[an online click and collect order].

Alan,who runs it,was exactly the same as Gary at "FLAME",and Leanne,the barbaress!!!

Top marks for these guys,they knaa who ti treat people,like they were thier only customers....that's a dying oot skill nooadays!!!

A like ti gie credit where it's due!

I’d definitely not recommend this shop, Leanne is the biggest trouble maker in the area. She is foul mouthed and hides behind keyboards, fake names and profiles trying to intimidate and bully people. Guess what though pet, it doesn’t work. Your shop is rubbish just like you are sweetheart. Stop trying to cause trouble in people’s lives!

@Stakeford lass :- don't think  @Leanne Todd will see you comment - she hasn't been on the site since the 25th May 2018 :-

    • Five parks in Northumberland are to be upgraded thanks to an investment of £287,000.
      Northumberland County Council's cabinet approved to spend £204,000, with the remaining £83,000 funded by contributions from the likes of town and parish councils.
      As part of its medium-term financial plan, the local authority has already set aside capital funding of £150,000 per year from 2018-19 to 2020-21 to invest in parks and green spaces.
      So far, money has been spent at Jennings Field in Bedlington , Astley Park in Seaton Delaval, and Eastwood Park in Prudhoe.
      Following the sign-off on Tuesday, Blyth's Ridley Park and Mermaid play area, Alexandra Park in Cramlington , Gallagher Park in Bedlington, and Rothbury's Riverside play area are all set to benefit.
      At Ridley Park, £45,000 will be spent in total with £25,000 being used to refurbish the hugely-popular water play area.
