Durham City plans

Karen Cooper

EVERYONE needs to look at the revised Durham City plans!! It’s in the Durham Times today (21st May) showing relief road cutting through from end of Broom park village through to A691 (no idea what happening to Bearpark road) – if you think our roads are busy now – it’ll be MUCH more dangerous if this goes through – let…s hope the paper’s wrong – go view plans when you can and make your opinion count!!

‘Boy’ Back In Town On 17/07/2010 « Ushaw Moor Memories

A very helpful Ushaw Moor Cricket Club official has just informed me that the first team are at home to Langley Park CC that day. I will be there to see some of the action [weather permitting] and fully intend to be in the bar at 1.30 for a pint or two, whether it’s pouring down or not. If anyone wants to take the opportunity to shake my hand that will be fine but either way I wil be taking some pictures for the album! The last time I say the team play the opener was Gordon Thompson, so it would be in the late 50s or 1960.

GYMNASTICS: Sam tumbles into medal party – Northumberland Today

GYMNASTICS gem Sam Dronsfield proved age is no barrier as he defied the odds to win a silver medal in a prestigious national competition.The 14-year-old grabbed the prize at the British NDP Tumbling Finals, held by the British Gymnastics Association in Fenton Manor, Stoke-on-Trent, on Saturday.It was an exceptional effort from the Glanton teenager who had recently moved up to the over 15-year-old category and was not expecting to walk away with a medal.But despite being one of the youngest gymnasts in his group, he grabbed second spot in the age group’s elite 2 competition. And he did it in dramatic fashion, getting his hands on the silver medal with his last tumble, which helped him notch a total score of 76.70.
