Comment: Everyone is talking about it ! – the pram race for charity on Sunday 16 June showed community spirit from the young people of Trimdon – I was very proud of everyone who contributed to such a fantastic day – these young people are the future of the village and deserve as much encouragement as we can give them – their next project is to reinstate a football team and with help from residents will revive community spirit – let’s make this village what it once was – anyone who can help in any way should come forward and offer their services – come on Trimdon !!!

Comment: Seems Trimdon Village is lagging behind again. We are once again expected to accept sub-standard broadband service, when the likes of Kelloe have superfast fibre optic. For the same price. A tad unfair? It would appear that our village does not appear on local government agenda. Again.

Comment: I am trying to contact Paul who’s Grandad was John Stoves of Trimdon Colliery. He was on the message board on January 11th 2011 and has since changed his e-mail address. I came across his Grandad’s name while doing some research and would be delighted to make contact with him. Many thanks, Gordon Stridiron

Comment: Reading the history of the church my happiest memories are of sitting behind the curtain pumping the organ, and woe betide you if you let the knot on the string go. I attended the village church school with one of the wisest headmasters ever Mr Middleton who we all called jimmy behind his back. I have travelled all over most of Britain

Name: Brian Murray
Comment: I lived in the Black Bull at the village around 1953, moved away and came back to Station Lane Deaf Hill and would like to make some corrections. Tom Smith taught at the Foundry school where he backhanded Jimmy Atkinson and the class room wall was smeared with blood. Is Jake Elliot Jac Elliot my cousin? Lee Crake wants to ask his father or grandfather about me, and finally we used to sort our own trouble out in them days and never bother Big Jim the Colliery bobby, except when they built Deaf Hill pit baths and he chased up the scaffold and we slid down the poles taking the planks off as we came down. Happy days

Comment: I’m trying to locate Wynyard House in Trimdon Grange c 1911. Also I had two uncles who worked at Trimdon Limestone Quarry at the same time. Is this the quarry that is now a reserve? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
