College stands shows backbone

DO we, the public, denote a bit of the independence from Northumberland College in Hawthorn Road? (News Post Leader, November 17).

Whether, it be through finance/social/democracy/education we like its way of thinking.

And I love the apprenticeship approach from the college/business.

But can we up the anti? By this I mean the enquiring mind. What is bio mechanics/engineers? What is the structure of genetics? How are road materials evolved?

As said, I like the stand Northumberland College has taken regarding an amalgamation with Newcastle College. Shows backbone.

Meanwhile, can we have the Ashington dramatic drama and song society back? We sadly miss it.
