  1. I believe the first Bedlington Terrier was named Ainsley’s Piper in 1825. Perhaps we could have the Piper awards rather than the Tony's or the Oscar's.
  2. Nominations are now invited to win Bedlingtonian of the year on Bedlington.co.uk and I nominate Alan Edgar (Eggy1948) for keeping this website active. There are one or two runners up although there are no prizes unless Mr Crosby, Wallace and Robinson fund it.
  3. A quote from from one of our councillors. 'Whilst Ian Lavery chaired Ashington Football Club it benefited from more than £1m of investment as part of the Arch scandal that took place under Labour. How much did Bedlington Terriers get? The answer is nothing'. It is "never too late" for Mr Lavery to "apologise".

  5. Mr Lavery suggests that miners should be pardoned for their involvement in the 1984-1985 strike. Perhaps they should! In the view of many miners and their families Mr Lavery should perhaps never be pardoned for his involvement with the Miners Union and their pension funds! https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-tyne-55002169 Perhaps a case of the pot calling the kettle black!
  6. As mentioned Joseph & Thomasina who married in 1899 had 4 children by 1911 however 2 of them had died. Florrie 8 years and Mary 4 years were registered with their parents at 6 1st Street Netherton Colliery. They appear to have a son George born in 1917 who is registered with his parents at 9 Crawford Terrace in 1939. Although the 1911 census and 1939 register are not free to access there is a free website that is useful for family history research. https://www.freebmd.org.uk/cgi/search.pl
  7. You can check the number of cases by ward on the Northumberland County Council website. It was last updated on Wednesday 7th October. https://www.northumberland.gov.uk/COVID-19-in-Northumberland.aspx
  8. Perhaps@Malcolm Robinson & @Bill Crosby could clarify.
  9. BBC updates cases near me on a regular basis. Whilst there is no need to comment on the Wharton Arms I feel we have been lumped in with the North East Region and lost our identity as Northumbrians. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-51768274
  10. Very quiet! Newcastle upon Tyne. 499 cases per 100,000 people in the latest week 29 Sep-5 Oct. 1,510 cases in the latest week 29 Sep-5 Oct +760 compared with the previous week 5,420 total cases to 08 Oct Today it is announced that another 1600 students have tested positive in Newcastle Universities! Why should Northumberland Council ask to be grouped with the likes of Newcastle?
  11. Northumberland County Council have apparently called on the Government to introduce greater lockdown restrictions. Was this discussed at council meetings with our local area councillors?
