    We don't have deliveries from Iceland ourselves, but many times I've seen them delivering around the Bedlington /Stakeford area. Our next door neighbour has deliveries from them. We do occasionally use their shops though and they have a nice range of goods. Great for party food. They even have lots of party food that they make sure cooks in the same time, so you're not waiting for any one thing.

    Arron Banks - what really happened!

    Now there's a subject for debate! Forget bloody Brexshit! They've sprayed around that many potholes it's going to be a case of Follow The Yellow Brick Road around Northumberland! They need to get the Munchkins to actually FILL them, not PAINT them.

    Eggy, I didn't mean viewing the plans. I meant the main page with the list of planning applications, the table is truncated because the website isn't mobile-friendly which, these days, is purely down to bad programming.

    Couldn't be bothered to look. Another crap website not scaled for mobiles.

    WBTC website Account suspended...

    Tried visiting the website a short while ago and got the 'Account Suspended' page - http://www.westbedlington.org.uk/cgi-sys/suspendedpage.cgi How long has this been going on? Admittedly, it's a good while since I last visited the site.

    Talking about pigs lugs, I wonder how the Bedlington Tesco's development is progressing?

    The javascript heavy site that stops you copying!

    Yes, snipping screenshots is handy, but you end up with an image that needs OCR to convert it back to selectable text.

    Thought for the Day

    At what point do vegans consider slaughtering animals for food is a no-no? I often hear them moaning about the killing of animals such as chickens, sheep and cows, but strangely never hear them complaining about entire ecosystems of birds, bugs, and small mammals being destroyed when a farmer fetches in his grain crops to provide vegans with bread and seeds. I love all animals and wouldn't hurt a fly, but would happily eat a vegan if stranded with one on a desert island!

    Bedlington........Dying On Its A..e

    Fair enough, you might get the odd traveller or tourist taking an interest in Bedlington's historical past, or the quaint, tree-lined Front Street, but what about the people who live here? Where are all the leisure facilities for the entertainment of Bedlington's young kids? Where's all the affordable housing for Bedlington's up and coming homeowners? Where's the infrastructure (doctors, schools, shops) to support all the new arrivals on the rapidly developing, overpriced, posh new housing estates? Oh! Silly me! I've just realised the answer to my own questions... Ashington! (or Cramlington, or Blyth,....... anywhere but Bedlington).

    Bedlington........Dying On Its A..e

    I take your point about people not using local shops in favour of larger superstores. Years ago I used to run a market stall. Ashington, Blyth, Cramlington, no problem, good sales all the time. Bedlington though? .......... nothing but a bunch of tight wads! No wonder the market collapsed in Bedlington.

    Gardeners Arms

    Happy times. We spent many an hour with our noses stuck up against Beadle's shop window. They had lots of small toys and trinkets to interest us kid's and we took turns at 'bargsying' items. We also loved the glass advertising signs stuck to many shop windows in those days. They were easily prised off with a pen knife by 'collectors' (er,.... or so I'm told!). Nice to see the West Sleekburn miners banner too.
