Leading Link - News
A Northumberland town is making plans for one of its most ambitious Christmas celebrations ever.
‘Light up Bedlington’ week, from Thursday 20th November - Thursday 27th November, is being organised by local charity Leading Link, working with West Bedlington Town Council.
Schools, businesses, community groups and residents are being invited to get involved in the pilot project, which will see a programme of festive activities designed at increasing footfall in the town.
Young people from a school in Northumberland have been cleaning up a local beach.
Over the summer months, Blyth beach has become the focal point for a number of gatherings of
young people, which have left the beach in an unacceptable state.
As a result, the Youth Ambassadors, who are a group of volunteers from St Benet Biscop Catholic High School in Bedlington, were keen to make amends for some of their peers and were invited along
by the Blyth to Seaton Sluice Links Conservation Group to get involved in a clean-up of the site.
In the first of a new series, discover Leading Link through the eyes of those that know it best.
'Through their Eyes' is a new feature which will see some of the Leading Link's key staff, delivery partners and participants talk about their experiences of this small charity with big ideas!
First up is Matthew Fenwick, a Youth Ambassador who has volunteered with Leading Link for 5 years.

Students from across 13 schools in Northumberland embraced a summer of change thanks to Bedlington-based Leading Link.
The charity worked with in excess of 100 young people across three different projects throughout the summer on a number of activities to help ease their transition into Years 7 and 9.
