FACILITIES: Missing an opportunity
MP Ian Lavery was so right when he said: 'Keeping youngsters happily entertained can be a challenge and an expensive one'.
So over this long summer period that we have just had, what a shame that we have had to take our children out of Ashington to Morpeth’s Carlisle Park or Blyth’s Ridley Park and spend our well-earned money in other towns.
I’m sure Ashington would benefit from the People’s Park having the equivalent to these other towns.
That’s the way to bring money into a town, not by re-doing the high street, but by catering for families.
