editorial image

May I, through your newspaper, thank all the good citizens of Bedlington and East Sleekburn for their excellent response to the Poppy Appeal.

The total raised was £5255.31, which was a 20 per cent increase on the previous year.

Special thanks go to the Air Training Corps and Army Cadets, and to the pupils of the Bedlington schools for their splendid efforts.
