  1. I was a Mona Taylor baby back in the 50s. I think it was the Sir Nicholas Garrow blind persons home later. Now it belongs to NCC & is called Hepscott Park. I went to pick up someone there from Age Concern a number of years ago. Sat outside in the car park I wondered which part of the building I was born in.: A very strange feeling.

  4. Had a desire to take me back to my childhood days of Rhoda`s chippy in Guide Post today: Had Kings meat pattie & chips. Absolutely brilliant, with that distinctive pattie taste, that hasn`t changed over the years. Top notch scran with more chips than I could manage!

  17. Dear All The more eagle eyed of you will have noticed the new Audio button at the top of our site. This is an audio archive of selected material from Synergy. At the minute you can listen to a slice of the 100 plus interviews conducted during our last FM broadcast. Over the coming weeks I will be adding more material which either features Bedlington people, or is relevant to our town & surrounding districts. The audio is also free to download (for community use only). Happy listening!

    Synergy Marks Murder Centenary

    Produced and edited by Synergy presenter John White and based on a script by the Sixtownships community history group, the re-enactment was recorded by staff and students of Morpeth's King Edward V1 School. The play is amongst a dozen of John's Drivetime show items in the Audio Archive Said John: "We plan to build up the audio archive so that people in the area who may have missed local items when they were first aired will now have the opportunity of listening to them. And as we're coming up to the hundredth anniversary of such an infamous event in Bedlington's history, we felt it just had to be included as part of the archive." Amongst other items that are now available on the site is John's transatlantic interview with expat author Paul Mann whose book "The Leek Club" describes his formative years growing up in Bedlington. Synergy organiser South Northumberland Radio Group is applying to Ofcom for a second 28-day licence to broadcast on FM and simultaneously on-line later this year. Listen Now
