    This month’s ‘Author Talks’ as part of Bedlington Book Club features Stephanie Butland.Stephanie Butland is the acclaimed author of five novels, including 'The Woman In The Photograph', 'The Curious Heart Of Ailsa Rae', and 'Lost For Words'. She also runs retreats for writers. Researching her novels has turned her into a keen performance poet and occasional tango dancer. She lives in Northumberland, near the sea.
  2. @Andy Millne - has anyone from the East Bedlington Community Centre ever been in touch with you about advertising their events? Stacey Chisholm Price on the Bedlington & Cambois Facebook groups, this week has posted three events taking place at the centre. I copied one of them - Jobs Fair - onto the Events calendar and Chat Central on this site. Might be worth contacting them to see if the East bedlington Community Centre staff wanted to join, and use the facilities of, this group.

  11. Alex - I can do that - I have taken a copy of your email address. There is also a method of 'Downloading' images that have been posted to your Download folder on whatever device you are using to access this group. If you select an image that has been posted it expands and then when you right click (if using mouse) on the expanded image you get the option to 'save image as' or 'copy image'. I will ask Admin, @Andy Millne - @John Fox (foxy) to remove your email address from your comment. It's just a safeguard as it stops 'spammers' getting access to members email addresses. If you want to pass personal info to another member it's best to use the 'Private' Message system = white envelope at the top right hand corner of the blue banner at the top of ever screen. I will message you and the email you.

  20. Nicknamed The Woody school, as it was mainly constructed of wooden planks. The school of our mate, Keith Lockey. Don't know when it first opened but it first appears on the 1951 ordnance survey map and it is not on the previous map of 1938. Destroyed by fire in 1969. When the replacement school was built, opening in 1974, it combined with the grammar school to be Bedlingtonshire Community High School.
