Bedlingtonshire High School leisure facilities "closing"


Recommended Posts

I see that the Chronicle are reporting that the "shared" facilities at the High School are under threat of closure. Of course it looks like this is a party political argument but I recently tried to find out if it was possible to book badminton courts there so I went to their website and the timetable for bookable facilities was entirely empty.

I e-mailed the contact address about 2 weeks ago and a few days later got an e-mail back saying they were looking into it. Then about three days ago I got a further e-mail saying they would get back to me when someone knew what was happening.

I notice that the Investing In Bedlington website formerly had a link to the page for the sports centre but that's since been dropped from the site - presumably after I pointed out to them that it was out of date.

So it seems that we had a facility that had virtually no publicity about its opening, no way of finding out about how and when we could actually use it, and now we might be losing it.

Surely as local tax payers we deserve better.

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
