We are delighted to announce 'Bedlington's Summer of Fun', which will offer 10-14 year olds access
to new and exciting activities during the summer holidays.
The project, organised by Leading Link and supported by young people from the National Citizen Service (NCS) programme, will offer a number of afternoon workshops across two weeks at West Bedlington Community Centre - w/c Monday 4th August and w/c Monday 11th August.
It is being funded by West Bedlington Town Council and is completely FREE for young people aged
10-14 years old in Bedlington to attend.
The top prize from yesterday's raffle at the Whitley Bay Playhouse remains unclaimed.
We know the ticket (yellow border tickets 231-235) was bought last night at UNITED; Celebrating Diversity - the prize is an overnight stay for two at Melville Castle in Edinburgh.
Young people from across South East Northumberland will get a taste of the limelight next week, as a popular celebration gets set for its seventh annual showing.
UNITED; Celebrating Diversity, organised by local charity Leading Link and supported by the Northumberland Catholic Partnership of schools, has been taking place since 2008 and has seen sell-out performances at The Sage in Gateshead and the Newcastle City Hall.
The sun was shining over Bedlington as its biggest family fun day had another record-breaking year.
The Big Event, organised by local charity Leading Link, took place for the third time at Attlee Park in the town, following a 12 month renovation of the former Northumberland Miners’ Picnic venue.
The day saw in excess of 2500 people cross the threshold, which is a new record for the event.
It also saw fundraising records smashed for the third year in a row, with vital funds being raised for the
charity’s continuing community activities in Bedlington.
