  1. 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
  2. Perhaps@Malcolm Robinson & @Bill Crosby could clarify.
  3. 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
  4. 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?
  5. 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?
  6. With a jelly gun............ whatever that was. Bats on top of pit heap when in tin shelter was a happy days experience.....
  7. There was an Ellenor Armstrong married a Brian Owen in 1959. Total stab in the dark although may help with possible dates if correct.
  8. Always thought of myself as a 20th Century Boy and a Child of the Revolution who had a Teenage Dream.😉
  9. Linda, Lorna & Tracey. Suspect I was at the same concert at City Hall when it started with Marc rising from the stage on a star. ☺️
  10. It may not help with Hollymount Hall however when Michael Longridge died in 1858 I suspect he was in Bedlington as he was buried at St. Cuthberts. I think in the 1951 census he may be in Westgate Street Newcastle with his family. I believe the original Assembly House was in Westgate Street. Hollymount Hall could be a 19th Century holiday home. ☺️
  11. The Chinese was on the Millbank Terrace end of Hirst Terrace (Now Brook Court). I remember when it closed that it was infested with rats!

  13. A Biographical Dictionary of Civil Engineers in Great Britain and Ireland Volume 1 mentions Birkinshaw building Hollymount Hall in 1844 and later selling it to Longridge. The book references the Memoir of J C Birkinshaw which I presume is the son of Birkinshaw ... John Cass Burkinshaw.
