 27 May 2013, Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner Vera Baird  visits Bellingham,  

In a public meeting hosted by the North Tyne and Redesdale Community Partnership, Mrs Baird talked about rural crime issues and how she hopes to impact on the provisions for rural policing, involving local focus groups and existing organisations as conduits for information. The main threads of the meeting were that she would both Scrutinise as well as support the police, while canvassing the public's views, then insuring that views and comments, where possible, are incorporated into future planning. The two main strands of work are Community Safety and reducing crime. The main focus will be on developing Community safety partnerships -: local organisations and authorities working together. Planning police spending, where resources should be focused and to design a workable 5 year police crime plan and strategy.

Monday, 12 March 2012, NTandRCP AGM guest speaker Steve Cram raced into Bellingham to raise the profile of two major North Tyne sporting events.Appearing at the North Tyne and Redesdale Community Trust’s AGM, Steve spoke about the numerous benefits of staging events locally specifically the Kielder Marathon and Bellingham Blast.While much of his time during the athletics season is spent travelling the world to cover major events, Steve still finds time to help both Kielder’s road and track races around the reservoir. As one of the world’s great athletes Steve knows only too well how the success of an event like the Kielder Marathon and Bellingham Blast can benefit an area such as the North Tyne valley.When the focus of the sporting world will be on the London Olympics this year, Steve told his Bellingham audience that it was also a great time to maximise interest in the Games to further promote the two races.He said: Events like the Kielder Marathon and Bellingham Blast can have a massive impact on the area by providing a welcome financial boost for local tourism businesses through the influx of visitors wanting accommodation or hospitality.The Bellingham Event Group co-ordinates the Bellingham Blast which attracts cyclists from all over the country. Now set to be an annual event it is attracting visitors to the area and generating valuable income for local service providers.  Click Here to download Annual report 2011-2012
