  1. I've now been in my property 18 months and noticed in the newspost a couple of weeks ago that my little flat that i moved out of is now back on the market. Although i doubt they will get many takers as they have it on the market with AS Moons. However Moons still have my details and photo's in the window!!!! They have been told on numerous occasions that I had sold, yet the details are still there. Good Luck to anyone who puts their property up with Moons.
  2. Thanks, I know the response is a bit late but I've just seen the post. Had a good birthday as was on Holiday in Corfu. C

    Dun Cow

    Thanks Splodge, think we'll have to have a trip down this weekend.
  4. Noticed that the Dun Cow has now become The Milfield, anyone know the craic?
  5. Totally agree Keith is should be the ones who've never had a job and play the system.
  6. How about those people on the dole who are nice and warm in their houses going out and clearing some of the snow for their money! Or if everyone in their own street cleared outside their houses it would make things a bit better. Get some community spirit going.

    Playstation Move

    Ordered Resident Evil 5 for it (cause it was cheap) I'll post a review once I've had a go.
  8. Yes I drink in Bedlington nearly every weekend. My reference to the binge drinks were to the last days of the Lion, we used to drink in there every weekend till the end when it was just full of kids looking to get served. Once the Lion closed they started to spill into the Sun where we used to drink but we moved to the Tavern because of them.

    Playstation Move

    I've just bought a Playstation move, anyone recommend some good games for it?
  11. I've been to spoons to day for dinner as I was one of the many that got free tickets to the pre-opening for a free meal and two free drinks. I was busy and well organised, just like many of the other spoons I've been to. The food was very good and a nice quick service. The staff were all nice and very friendly. This is just what Bedlington needs, somewhere for people to go without the binge drinkers, just to sit have a quiet chat with mates and some decent food if required. I for one will become a regular customer.
  12. Well said. They'll have my custom

    Big Cat

    About a year ago driving back from the Metty with MrsVic we (or should I say she) had a sighting near Hartford Hall. Driving along she starts shouting 'There's a beast, theres a beast, in the field' so she then procedued to try and do a 180 (into on coming traffic) but then decided to drive on and find a safer place to turn. After turning around and getting back to where she saw 'the beast' she jumped out that car and went towards the woods. Turns out there was a man there walking his black labrador!
  14. Stange date, a Tuesday! They are also posting pictures of the work inside on the FB page
  15. Its near Kingston Park, http://www.toby-carvery.co.uk/find-a-toby/kentonbank.html
  16. Never eaten at the Ridge Farm since going to the Toby Carvery a few years ago, well worth the drive. You may have to wait for a table but you are not hounded away like the Ridge.
  17. Apparently its going to be a letting agency. A bloke from Beech Grove is renting it.
  18. Mine too, the quote was £300 dearer this year and i've not claimed.....I got my new one from CSIS and paid £400 less than my renewal quote!
  19. I would turn over to watch it but I can't find the raoulmote control.
  20. Hopefully this will be the case
  21. Just what everyone wants to know: RE: J D Wetherspoon: Contact Form Submission†From: Acquisitions Internal (Acquisitionsint@jdwetherspoon.co.uk) Sent: 05 July 2010 09:10:23 To: claire jackson Dear Ms Jackson Thank you for your email. JD Wetherspoon has purchased the Red Lion in Bedlington. At the moment there are no onsite or opening dates agreed. Once again, thank you for taking the time and trouble to contact us. Kind regards Carolyn
  22. Heard the same, heard opening at the end of Sept.
  23. Thanks for the replies. I did make a complaint but have yet to hear anything. Also I went to Wansbeck Homes to ask about the letter and after getting a contact to write to, to explain what I want to do as the house has not been local authority for 20 years now, have finally received persmission free of charge to build a porch.
  24. As some of you may know I recently moved house (after 2 years on the market). I bought an ex-local authority house and was informed by my solicitor that if I wanted any external work doing to the house (including fitting new windows) I would have to apply for something called a 'covenant' letter before you apply for planning permission (if required). After finding nothing on the Council Website I contact the planning department to be pointed in the right direction.....They informed me it would be £20 for them to answer my question!!!! One month later and £20 lighter I receive an email to tell me that to get a covenant letter I need to contact Wansbeck Homes and the charge for this will be £50.........£20 to tell me that the robbing ********! Am I the only stupid person in Bedlington that is actually following the rules? How many other ex-local authority owners have got ones of these letters? And why are they getting away with charing for information that should be readily available.
