  1. But they could have done more perhaps raised the alarm or helped passengers move away............I also hear they have been awarded the WHITE HANKY medal
  2. If Lidl build store next to Morrison's I think it would end the chances of another food retailer taking over old Tesco site. We can only hope Morrison's consider moving...but that would only happen if they got the Tesco building for free or the council did full repairs on building and then sold it to them. If they stay put it will major traffic with both shops in same place
  3. the only thing which concerns me is there is only a couple of men working on roof......which to me means they just want to get the building sealed/dry
  4. would have been nice if they had been planted out for a while to give them a chance to mature/grow but thanks to the low life Knobs of Bedlington who think its fun rip them out and replace with beer bottles etc they are never going look very good
  5. we must have lowest of the low life because Morpeth have had all planters made up for weeks even though they are in main street
  6. if it judged on Wednesday it doesn't give much time to plant them
  7. is there much point doing this as some of the hanging baskets look dead and there are no plants in the square tubs near market tavern
  8. rosco


    It was bad enough when the bikers came to town for charity Easter egg run...then followed by make a noise.....but where the hell will people go if its nice weather this weekend If was the market tavern I'd put a coin slot on pub toilets ashington has at least 2 PCs open newbiggin 1 Bedlington town centre a BIG FAT ZERO come on NCC sort it out Is the block behind tesco closed because tesco owned the land if so they should be reopened as soon sale goes ahead
  9. Lived in bedlington since 1990 and started thinking how many shops have closed since then.....William low,Tait's cafe,car parts shop next to Tait's,Forrester's,jewellers shop,women's dress shop,Lloyd's,HSBC,Barclay's,mercantile universal,northern rock,dry cleaners and the shop next door,spend and save,coop dept,northern electric,British gas,Johnsons shoe shop,the video den,Halifax e/a,shell garage,ford garage,lighting shop and that's just the ones I can remember.....in there place we have a few decent replacements,houses/flats.....but how many takeaways nail/hairdressers/beauty shops do we need Don't get me wrong almost any replacement is welcome but you can see a decline in quality.To be fair a large chunk of the closed shops etc are a result of online/shopping habits Almost forgot 3 public toilet blocks As a final note I see the shoe shop is opening as a fireplace shop
  10. it means a vote for lib dems from me as they are the only party with any chance of catching labour in wansbeck.......labours majority has dropped from 22k 1997 13k 2001 11k 2005 7k 2010.....65% of vote in 1997 45% in 2010 .....SO HERES HOPING
  11. Blyth like Ashington has to keep the labour voters happy......... what better way than to have ANOTHER market square/street regeneration for both plus leisure centre council offices transferring from Morpeth and various other initiatives......Ian Lavery must be licking his lips in anticipation of a another all be it smaller labour victory
  12. Anybody know what's going on in the old shoe shop as there were a couple of joiners in there today
  13. rumour is its now going to be flats once plans have been altered from original care/retirement home......which means it will be a cheap bodge job
  14. How many regenerations of the town centres have Blyth and ashington had over the last 20 yrs
  15. Latest news from tesco is Gregg's will be moving shop because they share a fire exit...and tesco will have to pay them to relocate The shop was making a profit but the council wanted them to repair the old coop building which is in a right old state inside the upper floors
  16. Tesco bedlington closing....will be announced at 12.30...staff were told first thing this morning
