  2. Sorry Ladies. This is the first chance I`ve had to reply to your archive question. It`s a very busy time doing all Synergy stuff & a full time job. When our 28 day stint comes to an end. I will begin the job of going through our programme logs finding stuff which is either about, or relevant to, Bedlington. The time consuming thing is it has to have the music removed from it for copyright reasons. So it will take some time for me to do. But it will get done. In the meantime after our broadcast ends next Friday you might like to listen to some of last years output available on the Audio button at the top of the page. Many thanks for the kind words.

    Richard's History Listen

    L to R: Neal Younger (Synergy), Richard Pyle and Newbiggin Mayor Will Rogers. And Richard's commentaries will feature in a series of broadcasts on Synergy when the station returns on 87.7FM and on-line at www.synergyradio.co.uk in August. Richard, 53, who now lives in Zurich, was born in Newbiggin and admits to being "a huge local history buff". "I completed my masters degree on British history at Newcastle University a couple of years ago," he said. "I specialised on the history of south east Northumberland and my dissertation centred on Newbiggin." Richard's interactive guide to 14 villages and towns includes 30 sites in his native Newbiggin including Church Point, The Haven - former summer home of the Trevelyan family of Wallington Hall, and the old colliery site. "The app, which I call 'Village Guides' is aimed at visitors and residents alike and I hope it will contribute to a better understanding of the area's heritage," he added. Newbiggin's mayor, Councillor Will Rogers welcomed the new app. "I think it is incredible", he said. "It is an excellent guide to the area. We want people to come and visit Newbiggin, and this guide is a great and innovative way to sell the area". The guides are available on the itunes app store priced 99p to £1.99p. For more information contact Richard via villageguides@gm.com â–
