  1. I think former Wansbeck miners and their families would like to here him answer the questions.
  2. I find it difficult to name my favourite Christmas Songs/Records as there are so many. I will start with this as I believe whatever age you are it is never too late to believe in Father Christmas.
  3. The UK voted to leave the EU by 52% to 48%. People in Northumberland voted strongly in favour of leaving the European Union. Perhaps our local councilors can advise us of where they stand on that? As we have some great Independent representatives they could maybe advise and guide us on their views.
  4. I have access to some old census and voters data and am quite happy to assist anyone from Bedlington who is researching their own family history. There is a Free website that may also assist you with your research. https://www.freebmd.org.uk/search
  5. Yes Vic, That is our MP although I suspect that he has plans to be PM.
  6. I think only the Conservative Party could oust him in Wansbeck although that would be a big ask.
  7. I have a family history that stems from a community of Bedlington Miners who have always supported the Labour Party. I am however , not a fan of our MP Ian Lavery. I also do not know a miner who supports him. I do respect him if he has registered as a Dementia Friend and if it was not a publicity stunt then I applaud him.
  8. If you check the likes of TripAdvisor you will no doubt come across the best things to do in Bedlington however who in the town would agree with their suggestions. Perhaps we can suggest things that we should preserve for the town. i.e. 1. Bedlington History Society 2. Bedlington Community Centre 3. Bedlington Social Club 4. Bedlington.Co.UK 5. Bedlington Library
  9. Cheers lads however Its Oh So Quiet!
  10. Charlotte-Rose 'rang the bell recently' so thanks to all who supported her through her treatment.☺️
  11. Great post Alan..... Here we go again!
  12. I have not posted for some time as a result of ill-health and death of a family member. Previously Brexit and Elections were discussed and there were strong views. Perhaps the site has changed in my absence?
  13. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-england-tyne-45708563/dad-shaves-his-head-to-support-daughter-with-neuroblastoma It would be great to see the people of Bedlington support Scott & Kay in their efforts to raise £2,000 to help support Charlotte-Rose through her treatment. https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/charlotte-rose-sibley
  14. A Dementia Friends session was held at Bedlington Community Centre earlier today and there was a poor turnout as far as the residents, businesses and service providers of Bedlington were concerned. The event was hosted by MP Ian Lavery and Helen Williams of the Alzheimer's Society and I am sure all those in attendance will now have a better understanding of how they can help those living with dementia. Over 2.5 million people have become Dementia Friends. You could be one too! https://www.dementiafriends.org.uk/
  15. Perhaps all political parties should agree to review private sector involvement in public services in Northumberland. In the case of Carillion I see that the role of the directors will be subject to an investigation in addition to the company itself.
