Monday 20 April – Make A Noise for Bedlington

bedlington logo (1)Today I was out delivering my newsletter around Bedlington. You can download your own copy here (PDF format). The headline reads: “Bedlington: Time for a fair deal”. This relates to the truly shocking deterioration of the town centre. The shopping centre was once the pride of the town, but it has been going downhill very rapidly, with shop after shop closing down. The closure of Tesco was the final straw. I discussed this with a number of people when out in Bedlington, and everyone I met was very concerned about this issue. Bedlington has lost out to neighbouring towns in terms of public facilities – well, the exception is more housing estates, there is plenty of effort going into that! But what are all the new residents of Bedlington going to do when they move in?BedSelfie

Make A Noise for Bedlington (MAN4Bedlington on Facebook, you can follow it via this link) is a grassroots campaign, with a public protest lined up for Saturday 2 May. Here is their striking poster. I’m in touch with the organisers since I (and Wansbeck Conservatives) would like to support this initiative.
