This is pay back time

Every week I read letters about Bedlington.

I have lived in the town all my life and no one does anything to stand up to the councillors we elected.

One time, Bedlington Urban District Council was a very prosperous authority to be proud of, then in 1974 they decided to make it Wansbeck District Council.

Guess what, it appears our money went to Ashington and Newbiggin.

Ever since then we have got nothing back.

I say it is pay back time. Hand us our money back, and with interest.

We used to have more pits on this side of the river. Also we didn’t get our full share of the sale of the golf club. It was left for the people of Bedlington but we only got a little share.
