On Saturday the 11th of November a team of paranormal investigators based in northumberland came to the centre to do a ghost hunt with the public attending.

During the evening we had lots of activity including shadow figures, tables tipping, loud bangs on demand and people also herd names through the spirit box. Many people in different groups also witnessed a baby crying.

The centre has lots of history most of which is unknown due to lack of documentation, all people who attended had a great night, we can’t wait for the next one as every experience is different each time.

The money raised bought the young people a karaoke machine which has never been off since the evening and we would all like to thank all of the team and especially those who attended for their kind donation and on going support, Northumberland ghostbusters raise money for various charities the youth projects being one of the ones they love to raise money for as the children of the area have many disadvantages and the team know how important the projects is to the young people.

Thank you all once again

During October officers came into the youth club sessions to spend time with the young people in a positive environment, they played games with the young people, had a cuppa and a chat, helped them with bullying issues asa this was the topic we had been doing during the month. Its significantly important for the young people to spend time with officers and get to know them as they should see them as someone who can help them and to know they are approachable. The officers also judged our poster competition for bullying they were really impressed by the young peoples work. It was lovely to have the officers in the youth club and seeing the young people open up to them the young people loved it and so did we.

Police in Blyth have launched a targeted operation to improve the quality of life for residents in Blyth and have made the issue a neighbourhood priority.

Officers from the Blyth Neighbourhood Policing team will be working in partnership with Safer Northumberland to launch the ’12 streets campaign’ in the Cowpen Quay area of the town.

The campaign forms part of Operation Merlin – a project aiming to protect the most vulnerable in the community and provide help for residents who need it the most.
The campaign will focus on 12 streets in Cowpen Quay and run throughout February and March. Officers will work closely with the local authority and other key agencies to address issues such as anti-social behaviour, waste accumulation, drug offences, road safety, lighting and rogue landlords.

Blyth Neighbourhood Inspector, Grant Dawson, said: “The 12 streets campaign is a real partnership effort and aims to improve quality of life for residents of Cowpen Quay and make it an even safer place to live in.

“The campaign is a direct result of intelligence gained from the community last year when officers and Volunteer Police Cadets carried out over 500 door-step visits. During the visits officers and cadets talked to residents about key issues of concern and where they would like to see police and partner action.

“We’re committed to not only tackling issues such as waste and fly tipping but getting to the root of the problem and working with our partners to prevent the issues reoccurring.

“We will be working closely with Safer Northumberland and other key agencies to identify residents who are vulnerable in the community and ensuring they are directed to the right agency and receive the right support.

“Throughout this month residents will see an increased police presence in Cowpen Quay as officers carry out the operation and we encourage anyone who may have concerns or who may be worried about a vulnerable neighbour, relative or friend to speak with an officer face-to-face so we can take appropriate action.”

Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner, Vera Baird, said: “I welcome this proactive policing from Northumbria Police which is working with partners to tackle issues of great importance to local residents. Protecting the vulnerable is an absolute priority for me and I am confident that this project will have a positive impact for our communities in Blyth. I look forward to seeing more projects develop as part of Operation Merlin and wish this campaign every success.”

Northumberland County Councillor Liz Simpson, chair of Safer Northumberland, said “This initiative is all about agencies working together for the long-term benefit of the community.

“It’s important we provide long-term solutions as well as quick fixes, but no one organisation can do everything. That’s why so many agencies have come together to provide a range of support and solutions.”

The 12 streets includes Wright Street, Beaumont Street, Disraeli Street, Salisbury Street, Gladstone Street, Hambledon Street, Durban Street, Goschen Street, Balfour Street, Maddison Street, Hall Terrace and Hodgson’s Road areas of Cowpen Quay.

Anyone with concerns is asked to contact police on 101.
