  1. There is a memorial book in the old annex to the church . Names include my grandad who did not die but suffered until death in 1941 . A generation lost .
  2. The church is usually open after the service on a Wednesday morning Thursday morning is another open morning run by volunteers who are very knowledgeable . Hope you get to visit and enjoy our incredible heritage . There is a Facebook page simply Saint Cuthbert’s Church Bedlington
  3. Well done Malcolm and Bedlington .
  4. May be of interest
  5. We have to hope that history teaches us not to repeat the mistakes of the past . Harry Patch the last ‘Tommy’ said War is licensed murder’ The programmes / books about the Holocaust are grim to say the very least . I do not understand how people can be so evil . Dangerous times for us all .
  6. The Local History Society organise events and talks on a wide variety of topics . The members themselves have a wide and detailed amount of local knowledge but the society do not store any archives that can be viewed on line .
  7. So much history in our part of the World.. Ringing in the new year at the Clock Tower .
  8. Happy New Year 2022 We are going to celebrate and see the New Year in at the clock tower in Morpeth. We were last there 33 years ago . We won’t be there in 33years time . Happy days
  9. Never heard any ghost stories about Westlea or Hartlands. However if there are ghosts they must be good and keep everyone safe . West Bedlingto is a great place to live . Happy New Year 2022 to all including any ghosts
  10. Why does a brass band make me nostalgic .The film Brassed Off has an even worse / better effect . Nostalgia plus tears. Maybe a longing for full employment and childhood . We were warned we would not get jobs ( baby boom) but we did! We did not crave for the impossible . We supported each other , if possible. . Every Christmas and New Year were special with tales of only Apples and Oranges and working for the family at a young age .Maybe our children and grandchildren will feel the same about everything but in a different way, Strange times we live in right now . The Fear clause has been activated .Please don’t let it all spoil this time of year . Whatever we do !
  11. The Smoking Spitfires are excellent . i hope they get the audience they deserve

  13. I will pass on your thoughts . Very early days and hopefully it all informs and attracts a few younger members
  14. New Facebook Group hopefully it goes well Bedlington is so important in our lives
  15. The Northumbrian Magazine. Not everyone may agree with the article.
  16. Should I post or will I be infringing copy right
  17. It seems the Northumbrian article offended some people . i now have a copy and I am trying to understand why Sadly so much information can offend .
  18. A Facebook group is being proposed for Bedlington History Society . i hope lots of people on the Forum would be interested to join . It seems the only way to advertise the group and what is going on each year .
