No suitable venue for some culture

I AM a Bedlington resident and sincerely second everything mentioned by Mr Robinson (News Post Leader, letters, June 30).

Is it not time councillors stood up for the residents in Bedlington?

We all know both Ashington and Newbiggin already have sports centres, the latter having been vandalised and repaired.

What is wrong with some culture in our area? The only thing that is wrong is we have no facility, no suitable venue anywhere in Bedlington.

Why should anyone have to go to Ashington to use sports facilities? Do we not pay council tax?
