INVESTMENT: A difference in funding

As a resident of Bedlington, I read with great interest the comments of the leader of Ashington Town Council, (News Post Leader, September 17).

He thanks Northumberland County Council and Arch for the huge investment in Ashington, ie £20m-plus sports centre, another £74m on the way. No wonder he’s pleased. It’s hardly worth mentioning the building work being carried out at Ashington Football Club. A new stand pales into insignificance compared to such sums.

By the way, the town he forgot to mention is Bedlington. Councillors celebrate getting £135,000 for new changing rooms at Gallagher Park.
