A new partnership in Northumberland is aiming to bring two generations together.

Local charity Leading Link, working with “Johnnie” Johnson Housing Trust, began a series of inter-generational activities last week with an ‘Easter Extravaganza’ at Bedlington Community Centre.

The event, which was organised and delivered by volunteers from the Youth Ambassadors™ and National Citizen Service (NCS), was designed to introduce young people from the area with some of the tenants that they will be working with from the housing association’s schemes in Blyth, Bedlington, Cramlington and Morpeth.

‘Evening with your MP’ success

The Lodge played host to a very successful ‘Evening with your MP’ event yesterday, which offered young people a real insight into the world of local politics.

Leading Link would like to thank Ian Lavery MP for agreeing to the Q&A session and to the young people who attended – they were incredibly attentive and posed a number of well-structured and researched questions, which were answered by Mr Lavery with honesty, humour and integrity.

We would also like to extend our thanks to the staff of St Benet Biscop Catholic Academy for their
support at yesterday’s event and the Bedlington Neighbourhood Policing Team for helping to ensure
that the school-based session ran smoothly.
