  1. Just so. And I wouldnt disafgree with rosco's last bit of his take!!!!!
  2. 2nd load went off yesterday from the Community Centre.
  3. First load of aid going from Bedlington to help the Ukranian crisis. Great effort by all involved.
  4. As you would expect Bedlington has stepped up with humanitarian aid for the Ukraine and its displaced peoples. Our collection point is the Community Centre on Front Street. "I wanted to make sure anything we donated would get to the right places. I’m sure of that now! The Bedlington Community Centre has agreed to act as a collection point and is open every weekday morning. I have asked West Bedlington Town Council if it’s possible to fly a Ukrainian flag outside, at least until, the current wave of the crisis unfolds! Please, bring products from the list only. List of things needed (Based on information from aid providers): Personal hygiene products - soaps, shower gels, shampoos and hair conditioners, hairbrushes - toothbrushes and toothpaste, for children and adults - antiperspirants and deodorants (mainly for women but also for men) - face creams and tonics, hand creams for women. - sanitary towels, tampons, panty liners - larger sanitary pads for women in puerperium and nursing pads (breastfeeding pads) - wet wipes, nappies of various sizes, tissues, cotton pads Medical supplies - first aid kits - bandages, gauze and swabs, tourniquets, plasters, disposable gloves - anti-pain, anti-fever and anti-inflammatory drugs for children and adults - vitamins for children - something for the cough, sore throat, stomach problems, nasal drops. For children, to keep them occupied and distracted, to make them smile: - colouring books and crayons/markers - small puzzles - small soft toys/ cuddly toys - sweets: chocolates, bars, snacks, etc. And also: - baby porridge, baby rice, fruit/vegetable snacks in tubes (not jars), -instant foods such as soups, etc., -long-term foods such as canned food, etc., -paper towels, cutlery and disposable plates - sleeping bags, mats, blankets - power banks, batteries, flashlights Clothing in different sizes (please bring NEW items): - women's and children's underwear - cotton T-shirts, sweatshirts and tracksuits, - thermoactive clothing - cotton leggings for women - women's slippers, children's and women's pyjamas - bath towels At the moment, we do not collect used clothing. We might ask for it later on, as needed and requested by charity organisations in Poland. The collected items will be sent to the strategic reserves warehouse located in the Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship and will be distributed to centres of temporary stay for Ukrainian families who are cared for in this area or, as needed, transferred for transport to Ukraine."
  5. Our consultation is due out 14th Feb. https://www.northumberlandgazette.co.uk/news/politics/seven-northumberland-towns-earmarked-for-investment-of-up-to-ps3-million-each-3561053?fbclid=IwAR3q1E2kkNBgi0A1wNo3AIYdphj5AnyKadp_pozpz8IJbRlqcU2PQnXz8vI
  6. Happy Birthday CL..........
  7. Happy to pay the necessary earlier this year to turn the old dilapidated building at West Lea Cemetery into a suitable base for the Friends of West Lea Cemetery. Instead of making their Xmas wreaths in their respective kitchens and having pine needles and holly all over their houses to pick up they can now use this. It took well over a year to sort out with the legals themselves taking for ever, but it been worth all the time and effort put into it. Anyone visiting the cemetery and the lasses are there just say “Hi”, I’m sure they will be pleased to chat and I know anyone wanting to join them in their quest to make this cemetery the very best it can be will be very warmly welcomed. And a big round of thanks for all the help off NCC cemetery staff!
  8. Presumibly Eggy........but these days its more likely to be a bit of paper with a ref No on.
  9. I was taken to task when I designed this and had it installed. My reply, it will become something people want to take pictures of, and I have seen many owners with their dogs doing just that! Great to see it as a sold out Christmas card too.......... "Front Street News & Post Office We’ve managed to get hold of a few more Bedlington Xmas cards. These will go quickly and we won’t be getting any more printed this year."
  10. 1. NaCL……Sodium and Chlorine. 2. Steak for a black eye? 3. Neon. 4. Sax? 5. John Smith 6. Vesuvius. 7. ???????? 8. The Dandies 9. Great Stour? 10. Maybe Gordanston?? 11. Badger 12. Shrove Tuesday? (James Watt was arrested twice for flashing. So was Jane Mansfield and Brad Pit and I know who I wouldn’t mind being flashed by………)
  11. Just like to thank Hannah and Chloe for last night’s inspiring presentation for our Climate Action Group and taking the barrage of questions from our youngsters which ensued. Nice to hear we have their full support and expertise. Also good to hear about the support this has from our schools! I would still like to have someone from each of the estates in my ward represented on the steering group so if you live in West Lea, Hazlemere, Chesters, Meadowdale etc. drop me a PM and we can take it from there.
  12. Ellie, In answer to your questions: There is a definite mix of residents in the Town these days. It’s seen as an attractive option for people who, like yourself, work in the Newcastle environs. The shops are here and should soon be added to! The nightlife does centre around just a few pubs etc. though. However even these provide for differing client bases so most tastes catered for. As Andy says there are groups to suit a wide variety of choice and some new ones being established. For me the Town still feels a bit ‘villagey’ which adds to its charm. There is a great Country Park stretching from almost the Cambois riverside right up to Plessey Woods. Also Gallagher Park almost right in the middle. We will soon see a train station so access to the east coast mainline, and onwards, will be easy. It’s like everywhere if you want to get involved I’m sure you can, if you just want to kick back then fine too.
  13. Just to keep our friends overseas in the loop........
