Ron Beadle selected as Lib Dem candidate

The Lib Dem Focus Team has selected Ron Beadle to be our candidate in Low Fell in May’s local elections.

Ron has been a member of the Focus Team since 1989. He lives in Low Fell with Mrs Beadle (as she is known at Kells Lane School). Their children went to Kells Lane and are now at Emmanuel College. Ron has worked at Northumbria University since 1992 and represented Low Fell on Gateshead Council since 1996.

Ron said: ‘I am delighted to have been chosen to stand to be the Focus Team’s candidate. This is a community that residents care about and we are a real community. I look forward to the campaign.’

Low Fell is always a close contest and if you would like to help Ron and the Focus Team then please reply to this email.

Lib Dems Fight Labour's Tolls on the Tyne's Bridges
Gateshead Lib Dems are opposing Labour's plans for road tolls across the Tyne's bridges.

Whilst we agree that it is vital to reduce air pollution, Labour’s plans will not achieve this and will harm Gateshead residents.

 There are five main reasons for this:
  1. They discriminate against Gateshead residents, who cross the Tyne more than people from Newcastle
  2. They tax polluting and non-polluting vehicles alike, providing no incentive for people to switch to electric vehicles
  3. They will cost the average driver £17.00 a week, over £880 a year
  4. They will move pollution from the centre of Gateshead to the West where people will use non-toll roads such as Scotswood Bridge
  5. Other options to reduce congestion on Tyneside should be pursued.  These include allowing cars with passengers to share bus lanes, to work with employers to stagger opening times (e.g. have some major employers start work at 0800, others at 0900, others at 10.00), to improve public transport first and to introduce Park and Ride using swathes of derelict land in central Gateshead.
Broken speed sign to be replaced
Gateshead Council's officers have advised that the broken speed sign near the junction of Dryden Road and Valley Drive is due to be replaced
Hoarding repaired
After reporting the broken hoarding on Eastern Avenue, repairs have now happened.

Ron Beadle "I am glad that this has now been addressed as previously the site was a danger, especially to children who may have wrongly seen it as somewhere to play".
