    No Moe I don't have a problem with what you are saying other than it may just be a little bit exaggerated ! but not being there (and still no web cam!) I wouldn't comment. 

    We always have fish and chips on a Friday  and the hot topic of discussion in the  queue  today was the trouble  last weekend with most folk having a story to tell, I heard one person saying that a young police woman had been knocked out in one incident , i cant say of course if this was true, but why would they lie about it, The event known as Bedrock takes place in some of the pubs Vic, I think its about three pubs that put on live music, but the  majority of trouble comes from the crowds  who drink on the streets, there is no music or any form of entertainment on the street for them but for some reason crowds of people buy alcohol from off licences and bars and illegally consume it on the street and it always seems to end up with trouble, alas this year seems to have been one of the worst.  

    As for folk using terms such as Glass half full or glass half empty, my guess would be no glasses  bottles mugs pots or tankards, flagons or yards of ale will be the case for the public areas  in future events such as this

  2. No Vic, I cover Northumberland and Durham with the service I provide, sorry if  you also think I am knocking the residents of Bedlington because that's not what I have said or done  here in this thread,  But  I  do most certainly condemn most strongly the disgraceful  antisocial  drunken behaviour me and my family have to endure most weekends and bank holidays from what can only be described as louts and yobs. Some who post here know absolutely  nothing of what happens on the front street late at night and early morning, and are blinkered and biased attacking me if I dare to complain about  what they seem to think is paradise or heaven on earth. 



  3. I will not be answerable ta  ye hinny, an if ya divint like it then tough luck a winnit be jumpin through naa hoops ta keep ye sweet

    By the way hinny did a tell ya that a ran me own business  an  that a was  a businessman, did a, did a tell ya

    If that remark was adressed to me then what's going 'off' outside your house may have everything to do with me. Things that are 'going off' have a tendency to smell.

    Whey ya good at powkin ya snoot in hinny , if owts hummin an sure ye will be the forst  ta niff it,  ya knaa what the say though hinny, the one  that smelt it dealt it.   

  5. You are spot on Andy, an as we live just ta the back of front street we get all this anti social behaviour outside our house, and sometimes actually in our garden, we have had cars damaged plants uprooted and gardens used as toilets , it ok for some folk who don't live in Bedlington or indeed in the UK to tell me its a good thing , maybe if they had the damage and disruption that we have they would not be so keen, we still had folk knocking around in the early hours last weekend shouting arguing and screaming ouside our house (in fact that's the case on most weekends )

    You didn't say every one of them my good man, Moe; you did not, however, mention anything BUT the poor behaviour you witnessed, which led me to believe that was entirely everything you saw! Of course, I know it was not, as I know you will also have seen many people enjoying themselves in a perfectly acceptable manner, as did my friends. Yet, you see fit not to talk about them (and, to be frank, there's little doubt they make up the majority). So, why not say 'well how lovely it was to see so many people out enjoying themselves; such a pity there were a few who made idiots of themselves etc'? As that would clearly be a truer picture of the scene, would it not? Instead, you see fit to paint only the blacker picture. A pity, really, when the general consensus is that it was a good day had by all but the few who can't take their drink. 

    Then  hinny its a shame ya said that a had said that every single person was minging and spewinn,  I divint like liars but as a say a accept ya apology

    Now a naa that me and wore Goorty me sista  wornt minging like coss a divint drink like, (mind wore Goorty is minging but not wi the pop like if ya naa what a mean hinny ) I knew sum of the lasses that wor laying on mind ya, a used to supply them wi razor blades and work boots, an wore Gorty had trained a couple  of em ta carry t Hod when sha worked ont buildings like, aye nice lasses hinny.

    But a canit say owt positive aboot  breakin the law hinny as much as thee would like ta think it all rite,  the hole street boozin thing was illegal like an am ganna write ta the chief constable ta find oot why it was allowed ta happen and get it all stopped a say stopped ! , 


    I think as a business man a should set an example like ya naa, did a tell ya a was a business man hinny, did a ,did a tell ya  

    Its a shame folk cannit gan oot and listin ta music an enjoy them sells withoot getting absolutely minging  ,

    as a said ta wore Goorty sum folk divvint half show em sells up hinny

    Once again, you miss my point entirely. Heritage is important to a lot of people, as is history. Once more, have you been to Woodhorn, the pit museum? It's seen more than a million people visit since it opened. That's not bad for something that people are not interested in. Now you, and to a point myself, may be glad to see the back of the horrible conditions and such that you mention, but others who have no experience of it may well - well, are, as 1million people are testament to - be interested. Why is illustrating and promoting the importance of Bedlington in the railways so alien to you? What harm is it going to do? what is the problem with letting people know about the once-world leading ironworks that existed there at one time? What harm will it do anyone? It hasn't done Woodhorn any! Ehat about teh flight of the monks and St Cuthbert, and his alleged resting at the Church? Other places make something of history. The upshot is - which you've also missed - if you create something that brings people in, it creates the footfall needed to encourage other retailers. It is time to look forward, and resurrecting the heritage of the town is a great place to start. I'm disappointed you can't see it, as I find it very interesting indeed.

    Whats museums and St Cuthbert  got ta do wa buying a pair o socks in Bedlington hinny , ya away on a flight o fancy again

    As for the heritage aspect, have you ever visited Woodhorn Colliery Museum? It's very, very popular, and highlights the past industrial heritage of the area. It's not a lost cause. Bedlington has a very important industrial heritage that is barely touched upon; why not highlight it? I like the gateway features, they are nicely done. My point is make the heritage of the town visible - push the importance of the iron works and the engine works, make it worth people visiting, and then you have people to use the shops, cafes and other retail outlets. .




    Its only important to ye and a handful o folk who like ta talk aboot the past, and it has absolutely  nowt to do with what wa talkin aboot in this thread, most of us wor glad ta see the back of pit heaps, middens, tin baths, and wiping  ya backside ont News of the World.

    The good owld days of Polio ringworm Scabies and TB ? a think not, a naa what ya can dee wi em hinny. as ya said wi the banks and money its time ta look forward not back

    "and litter picks what a laugh ..we pay for them sarvices man..."

    Ah, the old British approach; we pay for it, let others do it! If I see litter on the street, I pick it up and put it in a bin. Do you, or do you walk past? I don't think 'no, I'm not picking that up, I don't get paid for it'. Instil that attitude in people - and it is being so in the younger generations - and you end up with exactly what you are complaining about: a town that is a mess, that is rife with vandalism, and where there are spaces full of junk. Because people are happy to leave it that way for someone else, who is paid for it, to come along and do it. Vicious circle, isn't it? I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong but I believe it's in Japan where, rather than a caretaker tidying up the school after the day, the kids have to do it. Hence, they are taught from an early age that it's their mess to deal with, and that if they don't clear it up, nobody else is going to do it. Food for thought. 

    Ya wor doing al rite hinny  then ya away wi the fairies again talkin oboot caretakers in Japan.

    A would like ta see ya put one o them broocken pushchairs in ya pocket, and as for where ta put the owld tyres, they would fetch tears ta ya eyes.

    My view on whinging on social media sites and then not adding anything constructive to try and rectify the cause for whinging is – why bother.

    How does whinging on Facebook  or this site resolve anything?

    Wee are these folk enjoying these so called features Eggy,  it must be ye and ya marrows cos everyone a naa said they are a waste of dosh, they look like sumic the bairns have cut out at school  and should be clagged on the classroom walls, an all tell ya sumic else if ya asked anyone what tha were supposed ta be they would not have a clue.

    If ya like em Eggy hinny teck them owa ta Seghill and clag them up owa there an see what the lads in the comrades think aboot them a can tell ya exacly where they will say ta stick them 😲

    Trying to understand your sentence – do you mean that if you, and your marras don’t like something then none of mine should?

    Do you mean that if someone comes up with an idea that doesn’t match your ideas then that person is wrong for trying to do something?

    Do you believe that everyone in Bedlington hasn’t a clue what the gateway features represent?

    These two comments, from Bedlingtonnresidents that I do not know :-    

    Liz Peart I have seen them all they are lovely the coat of arms needs a change of colour x I would have missed it had I not been looking for it x

    Simon Williams - The gift that keeps giving 🙂


    If ya like em Eggy hinny teck them owa ta Seghill and clag them up owa there an see what the lads in the comrades think aboot them a can tell ya exacly where they will say ta stick them 😲

    What have those four features got to do with Seghill?                                                                                                                                                                   

    Your anotha one who doest not live in Bedlington tellin wa wots good for us and wot wa should be doing

    Ya want ta try sorting Segghole oot before ya start on Bedlington                                                                                                                                       

    When have I told anyone what’s good for them and what they should be doing? Checked back and the only comment you might have thought I was telling people what to do might be :- ……………………..Anyone that didn't  then surely they should just take a different route to get to where you would like to stop…… and that was in reply to Webtrekker’s comment :-  Yes, Bedlington's a lovely place......... to pass through! 🚗 <<<<<<<<<<<<--------------. So I was not telling anyone what to do just offering a suggestion. Is that against the your rules?

    Ya want ta try sorting Segghole oot before ya start on Bedlington

    When have you seen anything from me whinging about Seghill or trying to sort out Bedlington?


    Eggy Hinny, ya want ta read what ya postin before ya hit the reply button, all ya doing is repeatin ya sell and talkin fluent wally.

    Ya to easy ta wind up man

    Correct me if I'm wrong, Moe but wasn't it you who said that "apart from St Cuthberts church it (Bedlington) has really nowt else worth looking at"? Surely you recognize the cross of St Cuthbert?

    St Cuthbats Cross, a bet he would be cross if he was here ta see that monstrosity,  Hinny that looks more like the  salt  an vinega bottles from Moby Dicks fish shop

    I noted with interest, Moe, that you were unaware of the NCC having replaced Wansbeck DC. Maybe it has also escaped your attention that Bedlington is not a “village”. Bedlington is a town.


    Ehhh a thusand apologies pet. mind  If that intarrested ya hinny   you must have had a slack day,

    A will have ta start and call it a doorty one horse Toon.

    Mevies  wa can make one o them new shops inta a Toon Hall , betta than stannin empty

    There are reasons for that which I’m sure that you Moe – being a businessman – will understand. Businesses, retail businesses in particular, have a tendency to place their outlets where there are potential customers, so choosing a place like Newcastle rather than Bedlington makes more economic sense. .

    Whey av probablly forgoten more aboot business than ye will ever knaa, wi been runnin worse for owa forty year and its still  gannin strang .

    But am pleased ya agree wi me that them new shops are never gan a meck anyone any money and are doomed afore they open   .

    Its nee good selling Champagne when the demand is for Broon Ale hinny
