Residents Newsletter – 2016 Spring Edition

WBTC Newsletter – Spring 2016


Remember to let us have your views –

As many people now know the Town has been presented a fantastically generous offer by Mr Rutherford who farms to the outskirts of the western side of Bedlington.? This council had no hesitation in taking the option of land for a sports development up!? We have five years to find the funding to enable this to happen.

Some of the most important things a funder will be looking for are community backing and commitment.? I’m going to take that as a given owing to the amount of verbal’s we have been giving firstly Wansbeck District Council and latterly Northumberland County Council over the years for us not having anything like this sort of community facility!

What we really need now is to find out exactly what residents want available within such a facility.? Please remember we need to know what you will support and that means pay to use, because this has to have an extraordinary amount of sustainability built in.? This will not be an NCC owned facility run by Active Northumberland, this will be our facility run by us!

Anyone going outside of Bedlington to access their chosen sports please let us know and also what sort of activities people are willing to support at this location.
