What more can anyone want?

READING all the negative things on Ashington, I think it is a great place.

On a Friday when I get my giro I like to go to the club and listen to the old timers reminiscing about the old days and things like jobs and having to work for money.

They say people used to go underground to dig for black rocks they had to burn.

Then on a Saturday I walk down the main street to see what stuff I can buy from charity shops and I’m spoilt for choice as there are nine to date.

Of course, every 12 months I get a new phone, again there’s plenty of choice in Ashington, and if I need a bit extra cash for a deposit then I can always pawn some ‘bling’.

What more can anyone want?
