  1. Hi Vic, I'm catching up on the D I Y duties around the house/garden although I'm  having problems getting bits and pieces because most of the builders merchants will only supply the trade. My other pastimes are watching the missus hard at work , I could sit there for hours on end. 😃

     We have no snow to clear here so  during her allotted break we have a game of darts,...she's now beat me three nights running !🥵 On the plus side I'd just bought a new car before the current restrictions,  It's doing three weeks to the gallon.

    Hello everyone,

    I'm after some information regarding covenants. I'm moving into Bedlington (near the Bank Top Pub) next weekend and my solicitor found a covenant in a conveyance from the 1980s stating that there could not be any alteration to the exterior of the property without written permission from Wansbeck District Council. Well, my property has a wee conservatory at the back - which falls under Permitted Development, planning permission wise - but written permission from the council was never sought for it. I have taken out the Legal Indemnity Policy, so really I'm just asking out of sheer curiosity...does anyone know who you'd have to contact to get retrospective permission? I spoke to Northumberland County Council and was told Bernicia took over from Wansbeck District Council so I would have to get in touch with them? Like I say, I'm just being nosey really, but it's bugging me that I can't find anything out searching the internet and I'm normally quite good at that!

    Anyway, thanks for any help!

    Hi @minitoonmook, one of the admins on this site would probably be able to point you in the right direction. I've tagged him so he may respond to your request ! @Malcolm Robinson

  3. Many thanks folks  just got my eye on this,  I've been busy as usual. Birthdays appear to come around quicker these days,as my favourite Band says:

    So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
    Racing around to come up behind you again.
    The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older,
    Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

    The residents group has been going almost 6 years now and we're still very active. We've had a Xmas party for the kids every year and we've had two trips , one to Blair Drummond Safari Park in 2017 and Flamingo Land in 2018. The trips were heavily discounted thanks to grants from East Bedlington Parish Council and Bernicia. They also help to fund the Xmas party along with donations from Morrison, Bedlington Station Co Op, Bobby Cowell, Proctor and Gamble and Kevin Foster Funeral Services.

    Bernicia recognise the residents group and we meet with them to air any concerns etc . Anti social behaviour is at an all time low on the estate and Bernicia have told us that they have a waiting list of people wanting to move here.

    We have a weekly bonus ball draw £45 to the winner and one every two months  at £10 a number which pays the winner £500.

    Bigger and better things are planned for this year.


    Good news for Bedlington Station and  well done to all involved ! 👍
