NBS Time Capsule Sept 2015

Time Capsule at the new Newcastle Building Society Branch at Cramlington

The memories of a Northumberland town have been buried in a time capsule for future generations to uncover.

Newcastle Building Society has been working with members of Cramlington Juniors football club and the Knitty Knatters to fill a time capsule which has now been placed in the walls of its newly refurbished branch in Cramlington’s Manor Walks Shopping Centre.

The time capsule includes a number of mementoes from both groups including a picture of Cramlington Juniors, a football top and a tie, while Knitty Knatters donated a CD containing their story, some knitted items, newspaper clippings about the group and NBS included a Tyneside history book.
Construction work is now finished on the new look branch, which will open this weekend.

Cramlington branch manager, Kelly Beattie, said: “We have been part of the local community for over 30 years, during which time the town centre as well as the town itself has grown.

“When we decided to redevelop our branch to make it even better we wanted to mark the occasion and we thought to capture present time was a great way to do that.

“Newcastle has worked with both Cramlington Juniors and Knitty Knatters before so it made sense to involve them in our time capsule project.

Blyth heart-stop survivor becomes one of youngest in region with lifesaving piece of equipment


A seven-year-old boy who was brought back from the dead has become one of the youngest-ever patients to get a lifesaving piece of equipment.

Cole Taylor, from Blyth,  collapsed while playing with his brother in a holiday park caravan park paddling pool, after his heart stopped beating.

He was revived by his dad and was later diagnosed with Long QT syndrome – the rare heart condition which struck footballer Fabrice Muamba.

Like the soccer star, Cole has now been fitted with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), which will increase the chances of him being brought back to life again should his heart stop a second time.

He is said to be one of the youngest recipients of the equipment in the region.

The youngster’s proud mum Roisin said: “He took everything in his stride, he was not bothered in the slightest.

“Now he is quite proud of it, he shows it off. I think it is me that is a bit more squeamish about it!”
