Newcastle Eagles WIN the BBL Trophy for a 7th time
Newcastle Evening Chronicle, 16th March 2020

Below is a photograph of the Back Page of todays CHRONICLE, which is quite unusual as it is all about Newcastle Eagles rather than Newcastle United.

I know they got the actual back page purely because Premier League Football has been cancelled due to the Coronavirus . . but it still makes a nice change !

I see a planned golf project at Wallsend Golf Club that has been denied its application. Any thoughts at it being built elsewhere? Maybe Newcastle Golf Course or Gateshead seems like a great idea. Would include an academy 2 tier driving range bars etc...

That driving range is facing the wrong way. The sun beams down onto you directly making it a bit sweaty int he warm weather and when you hit the ball, at times, it's hard to see where it's gone as you're blinded. Although I'd be happy for the improvements as it's not too shabby of a course.

Edit: Just read the article and they're moving the driving range, which means they're completely revamping the course, wow.

Wet n Wild waterpark in North Shields bought for £3.2m - but owners say future is still 'under review'

Chronicle Live website article from 11/08/20

EXTRACT

Wet n Wild in North Shields bought for £3.2m - but owners say future is still 'under review'

Serco Leisure has bought the waterpark near Royal Quays after leasing it for the last six years, giving hopes it could be revived

The firm said it was reviewing plans for the future of the site – and remarkably says that position has not changed, despite carrying out a multimillion-pound deal to buy the site from its landlords.

However, the sizeable investment in the property suggests Serco Leisure will be working up plans for the site in a bid to draw in more customers, especially as the UK staycation market is expected to boom for the foreseeable future.

Another "closing down" of the bowling alley on Westgate Rd, Newcastle, following above closure in 2018

Chronicle Live website article from 20/08/20

EXTRACT

Popular Newcastle bowling alley closes for good amid coronavirus losses

The Bowl Newcastle on Westgate Road had been open less than a year when the pandemic struck - but there are hopes someone else will now reopen it

They had been keen to keep the sporting history going at the alley, which had been welcoming bowlers to the 16-lane venue since 1963, and they invested their own money to relaunch as The Bowl Newcastle.

Now, however, the directors have been forced to place the business, TBNE Leisure Ltd, into liquidation, after seeing its income vanish in an instant through the introduction of lockdown measures in March.
