New school building opens in Highfield

A new building housing both Highfield Community School and Highfield St Joseph Roman Catholic School has been completed and is now open.

Though the two schools will remain separate, they will share some facilities such as the information technology and reception areas.

The building was opened by the Mayor Councillor David Lynn and by the Right Reverend Kevin Dunn, Bishop of Hexham and Newcastle.

I welcome the Morrison's Store with open arms - Sommerfield at Ryton is mega expensive !

The effort is clearly there in terms of regeneration of Blaydon Town Centre.

The bus companies are beginning to move in the right directions, but all is still not well. Which leads me to the next question:

When will we have a train service we deserve from start to end of day ? Metro Centre and Wylam (our neighbouring stations) are so well served by trains, yet Blaydon is so poorly served by trains ? - the most economic and environmentally mode of travel.

If the government (or EU) is to force road tolls upon us in the not too distant future, where are this countries public transport plans ?

Blaydon Railway Station continues to be under threat without answers.

From a morning train user who has to travel home by bus, changing at the Metro Centre.
