  1. 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?
  2. With a jelly gun............ whatever that was. Bats on top of pit heap when in tin shelter was a happy days experience.....
  3. There was an Ellenor Armstrong married a Brian Owen in 1959. Total stab in the dark although may help with possible dates if correct.
  4. Always thought of myself as a 20th Century Boy and a Child of the Revolution who had a Teenage Dream.😉
  5. 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. ☺️
  6. 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. ☺️
  7. 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!
  8. VID-20200612-WA0001.mp4
  9. 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.
  10. #StaySafe & #StayatHome Bedlington. ♥️
  11. Perhaps we will get the butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker.
  12. Maybe you could make that money back with a gig at East Bedlington Community Centre.
  13. 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/
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. Cheers Malcolm, just read it thanks. Keep up the good work.
  19. 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?
  20. I am sure I enjoyed crossing the footbridge over the main track when I was younger however I can not remember when it was destroyed!
  21. It is a difficult decision should a family member have to move into a care home because of dementia. I would recommend that you first visit the home and ask questions to reassure yourself that the home has 'expert care'. If you become a Dementia Friend it will aid your understanding of the illness and may assist you to decide what you need to consider. My mother had dementia and my mother-in-law now has dementia. With support, people with dementia can and do take an active role in life. https://www.dementiafriends.org.uk/register-digital-friend
  22. You can obtain a copy of Wills and Probate Records for £1.50 using the official Government website. You can use this service to search for a probate record in England and Wales, check if probate has been issued, check the type of probate issued, order a copy of a probate record (including a will, if there is one) https://probatesearch.service.gov.uk/#wills
