    Happy New Year - 2019

    For me 1969 was living and working away from home. On the night of the 20th (blast off was the 16th) I recall thinking its time to get home and watch tv on the rediffusion set .No signal on anything else. I recall a glass or two of rice wine. Underfloor central heating was a good start for the wine. The mix with three days of stirring then seven days to go before the Demi John was needed . History or Herstory. The decades roll on and when you have lived through seven it all becomes a story in itself. Trouble is that ,maybe , no one is too interested. Troubke at ‘Mill’ and current problems take over. i agree with Billy Connelly ‘Life becomes an adventure’ at this advanced old age

    Happy New Year - 2019

    Happy New Year. Why does fifty years seem to have gone past so quickly. Old age is the answer. Where were you when the moon landing happened .?

    Councillor Robinson - November 2018

    Just an odd thought Malcolm!!! Was it Ronnie Campbell who talked about the Wansbeck Mafia ? Could that still be true. Surely not in these enlightened days. One thought / you could join the Labour Party and being about change from within. i hope that does not offend you too much.

    Isambard Kingdom Brunel

    This seems appropriate to Bedlington.

    Has anybody noticed?

    What a topic? Interesting and funny to read. All that remains is to say Happy Easter but that could be controversial. Resurrection with eggs. Then there is Mithras. Blackadder would certainly have a few comments to make about this topic. Maybe even a new series of programmes.

    Councillor Robinson - February 2018.

    Good to read Malcolm. Informative and shows your dedication to our town. One day I hope it becomes easier to communicate with all the others involved. Sadly politics is not for the faint hearted. Keep on keeping on.

    No More Forum Meetings

    Thank you to Brian and all who have contributed to making the Forum meetings so special. The regular meetings will be a miss to Bedlington. I have good memories of the meetings I attended . People did not always agree ! The Red Lion after these meetings always helped to put things in perspective. Bedlington will rise again to the glory days.
