  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!
  12. VID-20200612-WA0001.mp4
  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.
  14. #StaySafe & #StayatHome Bedlington. ♥️
  15. Perhaps we will get the butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker.
  16. Maybe you could make that money back with a gig at East Bedlington Community Centre.
  17. Perhaps B&M Ashington or Dunelm Cramlington. https://www.bmstores.co.uk/products/stainless-steel-spoons-4pk-308985

    If you can tolerate a bit of advertising you could also have a try at the card game Bridge. https://www.arkadium.com/gb/games/bridge/
  19. Michael Longridge (c1785-1858) died at Hollymount Hall in 1858. (source: six townships) The hall was said to be designed/built circa 1844 for John Birkinshaw (c1781-c1845). (source: The Lost Houses of Newcastle and Northumberland.) Above does not take you back much further and certainly not back to Holy Mount. Good luck with the research.
  20. Somewhat ironic in that the Brexit Party saved him from the chop. Perhaps he should look at his own performance rather than blame everything on Brexit.
  21. Ashington, Cramlington and Morpeth appear to have a branch. Bedlington would have to have a volunteer moderator to start I believe. https://www.freecycle.org/browse/UK/North East
  22. Cheers Malcolm, just read it thanks. Keep up the good work.
  23. Hi Malcolm, This may be too deep or controversial. Who does or should a Bedlington Independent Councillor advise us on to vote on for the best interests of Bedlington in a General election?
