Re: This disappoints me but too late. Stan
South Shields did very well out of us becoming 'South Tyneside Local Authority' . As I've said before Jarrow and Hebburn started building housing Estates not long after WW2 and we soon became smokeless zones. Smoky Coal fires were replaced by smokeless Coke fires & gas fires.
We had modernised and Shields was still in the smoky 1800s.
As you can see, our Hebburn & Jarrow Councils proved they were better run Councils than Shields, yet Shields have taken over the running of our area.As they have far more Councillors than we have,they run the show.
