  1. That'll be Tommy, always walking between his house and his allotment. Also known infamously as Tommy the Egg man who once turned on Bedlington Xmas lights (I forget which year)
  2. Thank you all, my curiosity has been fed
  3. Apologies if this has been asked before, but does anyone know what that tower is off the coast Thanks in advance
  4. I ​​mean 'coincidence' right ? ​
  5. Not trying to be negative or anything towards facilities being available, but does anyone else feel cynically opposed to the closure of Bedlington pool with 'problems' coinciding with the soon to be opened £21million leisure centre in Ashington ??
  6. Foxy, I was about to put the following statement on FB regarding the lack of leisure facilities in Bedlington quote -> I'd like qualification on Labours statement of in the last two years they're aiming for enhanced sports facilities in Bedlington when Ashington is getting a multi million pound centre and Bedlington has nothing. The dust hadn't settled on the old Asda site when building work began on the new centre, I'm no expert on building but surely work from architects, surveys and tenders went out long before the demolition began ?<- end quote I'm not aiming this personally at Mr Lavery, but at our council in general
  7. I'd quite happily throw the TV out of the window as there's nothing but utter rubbish on, however in keeping with the point in question, I'd rather *NOT* pay a forced tax on channel (s) I don't watch. I had bother with the Tv license people for 5 years threatening court action, detector van visits and all sorts of nonsense when I did have a TV, but didn't have it plugged into an aerial socket. Each time I was told that I had a device capable of receiving a TV signal, and each time i'd reply I have a device capable of holding milk but I don't have a cow, I buy it when I need it and don't pay a yearly/monthly fee for the pleasure.
  8. Since a lot of campaigns gain a lot of exposure via social media, I thought I'd start (vodka told me to) with sending a tweet to Tesco in the form of @Tesco I understand you still own the building in #Bedlington, if this is the case then may I on behalf of our town request you sell up asap 140 characters is an unfortunate limitation, but if enough voices whisper then surely they will bow to pressure, worth a shot if nothing else, and only did it cos I care for our town and there's bugger all on telly
  9. Wouldn't be surprised if it was going to be a hairdressers, solicitors, estate agents or florists

  11. I was wondering what was going on with these lights, very annoying. Try fighting with the A1 traffic through Dunston every day
  12. Owner has been found, thanks to anyone who viewed
  13. if anyone knows of a lad called Daniel Brown who has lost a blue Nokia Lumia phone, I know where it is (not holding to ransom) it was found on the 20 acres this afternoon (23/10/2013). Please PM me if anyone knows who he is/where he lives and I will arrange to have him collect or deliver it to him. Cheers
  14. Never had a bad word to say about it, always good food when we go
  15. Tried Ubuntu from it's early incantations and found it very easy to use, however when they slipped in the amazon search feature and the (for me) very uncustomizable default desktop I binned it and went for Linux Mint, very easy for the novice user. I've tried a few flavours over the years, ranging from RedHat, Mandrake, SuSE, Mint and a few others I can't remember the name of.
  16. Veggies aren't safe either Keith, apparently the veggie burgers have traces of Uniquorns in them
  17. You're forgetting the florists, tattoo parlours and hairdressers which we have too many of..... Cheers
  18. Is NCC on a money saving drive at the minute ?? As it appears they are starting with their electricity bill, St Johns Road from the new flats down to the traffic lights, all street lights were off, The road past Blyth tip, all lights were off, it took them 3 months to respond to 2 street lights being off in our street.
  19. Quite loving this at the minute http://youtu.be/Qzby0B4Ahqs
  20. We really need to promote all leisure activities in Bedlington, I'm involved with an organisation trying to get kids from all backgrounds interested in football, they've tried obtaining an indoors venue for the winter but have been quoted £106 +VAT for a daily hire ??? They/we are looking for an indoor venue for youngsters to train with qualified/CRB checked coaches for roughly £1-£2 per session, this is a not for profit organisation and all money raised goes back to supporting the kids, the coaches are doing this in their own time and for no renumeration. Please go support www.footballfun.org.uk and let's get Bedlington the centre of attention
