I'll vote on one condition, if the supporters stop parking in the streets next to the grounds and use the designated car park (Tesco).

It's impossible to park anywhere near your own house on a match day.

I doubt the club will ever be able to guarantee that Les. I suppose the more less support activities, like bowls, don't get all the same sort of crowds supporting them, and don't play in the winter months. 

I often wonder if they didn't have the football club on that land then would then could the facilities, for all the activities, survive?

I know it must be a bind, for locals, on match days but if the football club wasn't there would the land be sold off for housing?

I don't know the answers - I don't live near by so don't have a parking problem - I'm not involved with any activities in the park.

As a Bedlington lad I just wanted to help Bedlington Terriers. They are still second in the voting, behind Gainsborough. According to Wikipedia, 2015 figures, Gainsborough has a population of 22,000+ and Bedlington has 18,000+. 

Better To Try And Fail Than Never To Try At All :D

Just checked the positions - last week it was Bedlington  (population 18,000+) Terriers 2nd behind Gainsborough (population 22,000+) - this week Bedlington has leapfrogged Gainsborough :D but Aylesbury (population 56,000+) has leapfrogged them both :(

James Matthewson - (Parliamentary Assistant House of Commons?) - just posted this on the Bygone Bedlington Facebook group site b:-

And after another comment, from Alan Edgar -   Might need a wider audience James - if someone had contacts with people on the local newspapers it might help. There may have been more voted but over the 4 sites I posted the request on only 20 members have commented that they have voted over the last week. As Bedlington Terriers appear to be the only North East team of the 19 teams in the list I think someone with more influence over the county may be of benefit

    • A burglar is behind bars for Christmas thanks to quick action by local residents in Newcastle.
      At around 11.45pm officers on the Newcastle North Neighbourhood Policing Team received a report that a man was attempting to break into vehicles and garages on the Great Park estate.
      Officers responded and a man was arrested nearby matching the description provided by the public.
      Karl Devlin, 27, of no fixed abode, was charged with burglary other than dwelling, two counts of interfering with a motor vehicle and two counts of possession of a class B drug.
      And at Bedlington Magistrates Court this morning (Tues) Devlin pleaded guilty to the charges against him and was sentenced to 17 weeks in prison.
      He is one of a number of burglars convicted as part of Operation Sleigh – Northumbria Police’s festive campaign to put burglars behind bars this Christmas.
      PC Gareth Welsh said: “We just want to say thank you to residents in Great Park who were vigilant and reported this incident to police.
      “We were able to respond quickly and identify a suspect in the area before anything of significant value was stolen.
      “As a result of their quick action a burglar is now behind bars for Christmas and he won’t be able to ruin this time of the year for any other members of our local communities.
      “It is always really positive when the public can work together with police to help us take opportunist thieves like Karl Devlin off the streets.”
