Comment: Which part of “pick your dogs s**t up” do dog owners in Trimdon Colliery not understand. After a ten minute walk with my lads I had two pair of new trainers to clean and a new football to throw away, it is a disgrace, start showing a little bit of respect to your village and the people who choose to live in it.

Comment: Hi to everyone at the council houses Deaf Hill and the colliery, I worked at Deaf Hill pit 1952 to 1962 before moving to the Derbyshire/Notts coalfields, I was born in Beech Grove 1936, then moved to 77 Station Lane, and then to 5 Prospect Terrace opposite the school. My parents both passed away at 3 Malvern Terrace in the foundry, I have never forgot my grass roots. I wish you all a Merry Xmas and a Happy New year. George Mills

Comment: Totally agree with the comments regarding dog fouling in the Colliery its a disgrace.  As sad as it sounds I  counted over 12 “piles” from Low Hogg Street to the shops.  Trying to avoid it whilst pushing a buggy is a nightmare.  I am sick of having to clean it off the wheels to avoid bringing it in the house especially with a baby crawling all over.

Comment: Please can the idiots who keep driving recklessly over the grassed area next to the children’s play area / astro turf pitch in Trimdon Colliery please stop and think for a second! This area you shouldn’t even be driving on. More importantly this is a children’s play area – how would you feel if god forbid you knocked a child or someone down?! I am proud of where I live and am disgusted when I see what a mess your vehicles leave on the green.
Secondly, the children’s play area / green is meant to be litter picked daily. I only see the litter picker every now and again. Everyone knows some under aged teenagers often drink at this spot. Often a lot of the glass bottles are left behind and are sometimes smashed leaving the prospect of children and dog walkers etc. easily cutting themselves on broken glass. If the area is meant to be cleaned daily then it should be!
Thirdly, the colliery has a really good children’s play area and astro turf which has spot lights available. Can someone please explain why the lights are never put on when it gets dark? Even if it is just a few hours every night for children to play and use the area. I appreciate the current government funding difficulties however a lot of money has been invested in developing the play park / astro turf pitch and money spent maintaining it – so what is the point of all that if money is not going to be spent putting the lights on for a few hours every night from say Oct to March time every year….
Finally, I was really impressed to see the snow plough go past my house 4 times in 2 hours last night! It is nice to know money is getting invested in this – often in the past the roads in Trimdon have been on a ‘back burner’ leaving dangerous driving conditions.

Comment: I would just like to say I was up Deaf Hill cemetery on Monday and it looks well, it’s a credit to all the the council, the only thing the grit or salt boxes were empty and we are getting near to the bad weather but I am sure that this will be in hand.

Comment: I would just like to comment about the state of a number of footpaths, recreation areas and also general grassed areas in Trimdon Colliery. I am sure most people will be aware of this but the amount of dog fouling that is going is absolutely disgusting. I will report this to the correct authorities if I see it blatantly occurring. This is not on!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Comment: That’s good Derek, but I think Anon and myself were talking about Trimdon Village. It sounds like those things you were talking about happen in Trimdon Colliery/Station. Lets hope these things are taken up by the young people of Trimdon Grange and Trimdon Village.

Comment: I remember when I was younger, Trimdon did a bonfire and fireworks display,  jazz band displays, Santas grotto in the village hall, that was what brought the community together so no-one was a stranger, everyone knew each other. If all this was happening now the community would be better.

Comment: Not all of the new people to Trimdon are scruffy! A lot of us have brought money into this area as it is a regeneration area hence improvements have been made. Anti social behaviour etc is everywhere.  If you have only ever lived in Trimdon and surrounding areas how do you know what it is like to live anywhere else?  Believe me other places in the country have far worse happenings and instead of always focussing on the negatives and moaning, do something about it.  I am very happy living here with my family and think there are many positives!  Please don’t label all of the new people to Trimdon as some of us are hard working family people just trying to make a nice life for our family.

Comment: Hi, don’t know if anyone can help me, I’m trying to find out about my fathers side of the family.
His name was (think he passed away in 1990) Ernest Slater. It would have been his birthday today. I don’t know much about my fathers side and I would like to know more. His mam used to live at 15 Northside Terrace, Trimdon Grange but that was a lot of years ago. He had 2 sisters, I believe their names are Sheila and Vi, and a younger brother called Brian.
I am not wanting anything, just be really nice to know what’s missing out my life.

I remember when you could recognise everyone and knew almost everyone in Trimdon but now its full of scruffs and bag heads from the towns. Trimdon needs to take a stand…… celebrity jooce.

Comment: I think something needs to be done at Trimdon Colliery park and astro football pitch as young people as old as 10 to 15 are drinking and smoking dope, while decent kids get chased away and can’t use the facilities. Their parents need to keep an eye on their kids as it’s only time before something happens….

Comment: Is it me or is there a distinct lack of pubs in Trimdon?? I’m pig sick of going to the Royal, then up the Colliery Club, then back to the Royal. And in between I get sucked into the betting shop and keep spending my hard earned cash. TRIMDON…. WE NEED MORE PUBS….

Comment: Thought I’d jump on the bandwagon and also offer my  own business enterprise services to the lovely folk of Trimdon. I’m currently doing a small line in womens make up, imported and full income tax and VAT paid from Thailand. There is a variety of products here, eye liner and blusher to name a few. Prices are very competitive. Christmas is coming so lads get your hands in your pockets and help me pay for my trip to the Caribbean next year. Thanks.

Comment: Hi everyone, just a quick advertisement pitch here. I’ve set up a new business called “Chris Ford: Sliding Doors”.  My prices are very reasonable at the moment. Due to the economic decline in our country I thought I’d put on a bit of a discount to anyone interested in buying my service. To anyone born and bred in Trimdon (and you have to prove it through blood records) Iam offering a 25% discount on all doors purchased and fitted by myself or my right hand man, Clive Harrison, known locally as “Dobby”. I am also running a small venture alongside my sliding doors. I know the weather is getting colder now, but anyone interested in renting hot tubs, you are looking at the right man. Just call me on 07747634370 and I’ll quote you a price. Discounts go to those girls in a size 8 bikini and leather boots. Thanks for your time. Chris Ford: Sliding Doors.

Comment: I visited Trimdon Grange for the first time in about fifteen years last year.  I was very surprised and pleased to find it so much more beautified – nice little village now.  No more pit-heap, just a forest of small trees.  Everyone on the street was friendly, I had the time of my life there.  Hope to come over again in the next couple of years.  And how about those windmills???  Fascinating!  I even got good weather in October!

The (1856-1865) map shows the location of The Trimdon Grange Foundry by the railway before the houses or the pit.

Comment: Hi Peter , I have forwarded my email address as per your request, I would be very interested in a map of the foundry . Was there ever a foundry there and at what date ? I know Spennymoor had a steel plant at Bessemer Park , I imagine one of the first Bessemer converters. It’s a pity most of  Trimdons industrial history is lost, the pits, and lime kilns, railways.

How are you? I saw your picture in the July 24th Daily Express. Are you sure you’re 70? I play rugby with blokes that look older than you! Anyway, great to see you are well.

Comment: Hey is anyone else completely fed up with the ‘roadworks’ at Trimdon/Fishburn crossroads? All most everyday, the lights and cones have been moved to a new position. I’d resorted to cutting through Fishburn to skip the lights, but now those lovely cones and its slow changing traffic light, are now at the Fishburn exit. So I can’t avoid it at all. And now because of the Tall ships, the 689 roundabouts in the A19 direction are all screwed too. Roundabouts you can’t go around??? Okay…umm…huh.
I just want to get to work in the morning, without having to navigate all these effin cones!

Comment: Hi George (Mills)
The baths were built around 1959 (I think) . I was at the Foundry School around1955 but have no photos of those harrowing years :o). Did you attend and if so do you remember a Mr Condon (at least I think that was his name) had a false arm and used to bang it on the blackboard for effect. Certainly scared the Hell out of me. And the head Mr Burnip, great fella he was, always had us singing Men of Harlech :o)

Comment: Born in a place called Coffee Pot, Trimdon Collery, moved to Main Road Trimdon Village, when us kids from Main Road, Dunelm Road and West Grove dared to venture to play in the church yard (when it was a church yard with grave stones, large trees and owls nests.) The area there was known as old Trimdon, and we were called them dam kids from the new estate, no Log. or Carr’s pond, pit heaps, kitty dales, Tot’s quarry, Joe’s wood, the beeches or dark wood, and before I was school age I learnt to swim in the green and blue waters of Gamside quarry. Much more fun than hanging around shops or bus shelters.

Comment: I left the message on here regarding the Help for Heroes charity night at Trimdon Labour Club on 18th June. Yes PW England were playing that night but the people in the “entertainment committee” did not have the manners to call the group who were performing that night and let them know that no tickets had sold, either when the football draw was announced or in the weeks up to the event. they let them go into the club hours before the event and set up their stage show and get the evening prepared. not once did any of them go into the room and let them know that no one was coming. Maggie and the guys from Lay Down Your Arms could have used the night to appear at a different venue where hundreds of pounds could have been raised for Help for Heroes.
Yes our boys and girls do choose to join the Forces instead of being farmers. doctors, factory workers etc, and thanks to all the brave men and women that went before them, and fought for our freedom,  they have the choice to do this and it is thanks to those brave souls both past and present that we, as ordinary workers have to right to live our lives as we choose, including calling ourselves pacifist worker. Our members of the Armed Forces are extra special people and deserve all the support , no matter how small that support may be, that anyone can give them no matter where in the world they are serving. My son and cousin are both serving Soldiers and no-one could be prouder than me to say that they have taken their Oath of Allegance and sworn to serve their Queen and Country.

Comment: Although I moved into the Derbyshire/Nottinghamshire coalfields 48 years ago I love to read your website daily. One of the main events of the year when I worked at Deaf Hill Colliery from 1952 – 62 was Durham Big Meeting, which I went to every year from 1948 when living in 77,Station Lane and 2, Prospect Terrace. The last time I marched through the village with the Trimdon Brass Band was 2 years ago with my old friend Jake Elliott ex Drum Major 2nd battall, Scotts Guards leading the parade. I hope everyone from the council houses, Deaf Hill, Trimdon Station, the Foundry and the Colliery have a wonderful time on parade on Wednsday and Saturday, sorry I won’t be able to attend as I will be on holiday in Torquay. Regards George Mills, I have never forgot my grass roots.

Comment: Perhaps that’s where we go wrong in this world. England were playing in the world cup on the night that the event was organised for Help our Heroes, after all footballers are worth there weight in gold and are certainly paid as much, our servicemen only lay their lives on the line for their country and are paid a pittance………..

Comment: Trying spending a week in the depths of Dr Congo or Sudan and see what people living in Trimdon have to complain about. Not much to be honest. You get teenagers hanging around everywhere as they have nowhere to go or nothing to do. Yes a large group can be intimidating, however I’ve not heard of elderly people being attacked or abused as they shop. The odd minority cause arrestable trouble. I for one will be glad to get back to lovely Trimdon after living in a place where they really have nothing and have plenty to complain about.

Comment: Maybe it’s just me , but isn’t every man and woman who goes out to work every day  a hero  . Construction workers are killed every day , doctors and nurses are beaten by crazy patients , factory workers are crushed in machinery , miners,  farmers……….. The military is a lifestyle choice – lets see some support for the regular worker who isn’t trained to kill people .

Comment: In reply to Anon ex resident of Trimdon; Forgive me if I am mistaken but wasn’t England playing in the world cup that night? Yes the turn out off 6 people for such a worthy event is poor, but what did the organisers expect when most of the country was watching the England match on TV.
Perhaps it would be better to  blame the timing of the event rather than the people of Trimdon.

Comment: I would just like to say that I am totally ashamed to call Trimdon Village my former home. I attended a charity night tonight (Friday 18th June) at Trimdon Labour Club that was organised in aid of the Help for Heroes charity and 6 people turned up. The artist had more people there than the people who had paid for tickets. Supposedly the committee had “done all they could to advertise this event” but did not have the good manners to contact the artist and advise that no tickets had been sold, this is ignorance and nothing more. If the people of Trimdon cannot support this worthwhile charity when boys and girls from their own village are serving in the Armed Forces. I will be very surprised if Trimdon Labour Club is open next year as not one of the people I spoke to seemed to care that people had travelled to put on a show at their club. They only seemed to be interested in chucking pints down their necks and sitting with their little cronies and trying to say that the artist was at fault for no-one turning up. This show fills clubs around the north-east of England in clubs where the entertainment team make the effort to let people know what they have planned for their clubs, but no, this would be too much to ask of Trimdon labour club wouldn’t it. I guess their target of 3 customers a night is enough for them.

Comment: On behalf of Trimdon Band I am writing to say how disappointed and disheartened we are to hear that Deaf Hill Banner Group have engaged the services of Dearham Band for Durham Miners Gala.  Trimdon Band is always proud to represent the Trimdon and Deaf Hill Community and were looking forward to doing so once again this year.
Although Trimdon Band has a long standing arrangement with another Banner Group (which was made prior to the Deaf Hill Replica Banner being produced) for the past few years, we have endeavoured to work together to honour commitments to both Banner Groups.  As the Band  were not informed that the Deaf Hill Banner Group were seeking to engage a different Band we assumed that we would be working together once again this year.
We wish the Banner Group all the best for Gala Day.
The Band do however still intend (weather permitting!) to perform within the village on the Wednesday evening prior to the Gala.  Further details available soon.

In my area there has been a gun siege where armed police were involved, cars damaged, bins tipped over and set alight, local shop burgled and windows put out on a regular basis, old people being frightened, idiots drinking around play areas leaving broken bottles everywhere. The list goes on. That’s why a lot of people are complaining. By the way , if you were a true Trimdoner you would know there are FOUR TRIMDONS plus DEAF HILL .

They have made a right mess of the shops and, as someone else said it’s always been like that, well it certainly wasn’t when we used to hang round the phone box when younguns, and we certainly didn’t have cans of cider, drugs or anything like it.

I mean look at Dawsons at SpineCop Trimdon Grange, they are no bother, the ones down Trimdon Colliery are ne bother, at the end of the day people have got to live somewhere and if it’s their own land that’s bought and paid for so, be it, it’s better than folk sponging off the dole and get council house for nowt and making a mess of ’em and the streets. Like I say they have human rights just like you and I. That’s it. rant over and out. LOL

Comment: I was born and bred in Trimdon and loved the place. Having moved away 23 years ago I visit regularly to see my family and have yearned to move back many a time. This has diminished as time has gone by mainly due to the dreadful behaviour of the local thugs and yobs down Chuch Road. I have read the comments on this page and have to disagree with some of them, especially when they believe Trimdon was like this years ago. I never felt afraid walking to the shops at night but certainly wouldn’t dream of venturing out after dark now when on one of my visits. I couldn’t believe the mess that was left from the night before when going to the newsagents one morning and actually saw with my own eyes the yob culture with their drink and drugs. It makes me sad to see what has happened!! It’s time this was sorted so Trimdon can become the lovely place I remember once again.

Comment: Well I regularly return home to the village where my parents live. It annoys me the kids hanging about and being abusive to anybody walking past.  My gran and her friend stopped walking to the shops on summer evenings because of these kids, as they felt threatened and intimidated by them.  I know it’s a small minority and I agree with the use of extra patrols and use of asbos but some of it has to do with educating parents on manners and respect again.  I know when in groups kids who are most likely to be nice kids can appear threatening, also selling alcohol to kids has to be addressed also.

These people are supported and aided by our councillors regardless of political party. Let’s attempt to look at the good and build on it to make the problems better.

Comment: John are you saying we should approach these ‘youngins’ and make our feelings known? Am I supposed to walk up to a gang of them and politely point out that their behaviour is not acceptable?
I really don’t think they, whilst taking a swig from a can of lager/cider (that’s another thing. People need to stop going into the shops and buying booze for them and shops need to stop knowingly selling it to them, even via an adult) anyway I really don’t think they’ll turn around, apologise and make an effort to change.
I’d be more likely to get told to, in no uncertain terms to eff off.
People are making their views known via other means for example here, the local police, councils, mp’s and still no difference is being made. If the cops have no courage to face them, then the everyday civilian is going to steer well clear.
As for having nothing to do, I really don’t find that to be an excuse. I dare say if they looked hard enough they’d find something (youth club, sports teams, music..etc)

To make a stand you must start at home and put your name up, its no good hiding if you got something to say to the youngins you will not get respect by hiding behind the wall . Yes there are villains but they have nothing to do these days with all the cutbacks, and coming from a deprived place you can’t expect any different can you – Trimdon will always be Trimdon, no one can change that.

Now we’ve got gangs of youths wrecking anything and everything, using foul language to whomever they please. People don’t feel safe when out and about in the evening and the police don’t give a toss.
Mind you why should the police care when it’s so clear that the parents of these adolescent idiots don’t give a toss either. As long as they get their benefits from the social and are all comfy cosy in time for Eastenders, nothing else matters. I think it’s time parents paid for their lack of parental guidance and were made to bring their kids into line.

We have a County Councillor that lives in the village. We had a PM that made a point of bringing the world’s press to our village. All labour, that have done nothing to bring real prosperity to Trimdon Village. All these people must walk around this village and see exactly what we see and do nothing. So just remember that the election is not far away and all these people will be knocking on our doors wanting our votes, or will they think the Labour Party can take Trimdon Village people for granted so they probably will not bother.

They make you feel unsafe and nothing is getting done about it, the parents of these children should be ashamed. My child has yet to grow up but is being taught right from wrong. I remember when you could walk the streets and everyone was friendly and had great community spirit, now you only have to look at someone the wrong way and you get abuse and threats. Why do we pay taxes when this behaviour is not getting dealt with? I am in the process of looking at moving out of this village even though I was born and raised here.

Comment: I have only lived in Trimdon since 1998, but my God has it gone down the pan in that time.  I thought the village was just superb.  There were no gangs hanging about at the shops, all underage, drinking and smoking in full view without a care in the world, hardly any drugs and few vandals.  So only £25,000 spent on improvements in Trimdon compared to £200,000 in Fishburn seems sensible to me, because the handful of teenagers who think they live on a film set in there “gangs” would only wreck whatever improvements were made.  Only recently all the block paving from under one of the seats on the millennium green was ripped up and thrown into the school playground.  What a waste of money that was.  Isn’t it time that we adults took this village back?  Please report every little crime and every little incident.  Police organise their patrols in the hotspots and without reporting ALL crime, Trimdon will be off the Police radar.  Let’s name and shame the idiots.

Comment: Can anyone please tell me why our village is going down the pan. When I walk around the village I look on in dismay, it looks so untidy and unloved . There are a few questions that I have.
1: When was the last time the stones were painted on the village green.
2: Why does the village hall constantly get vandalized but nothing seems to be done about it.
3: Why do the Church Road shops still look terrible even after so called improvements.
4: Why does nearby Fishburn get nine times more investment money than Trimdon Village. Looking at a recent leaflet from the Labour party, over £200,000 for Fishburn, £25,000 for Trimdon Village?
5: Is it not possible for the old part of the village to have some period street lighting, and more trees planted on the upper part of the green .Trimdon Village is a beautiful village but I think it is being let down .What do you think?

No dog has ever run me over on a pedal cycle, no dog has ever thrown things at my car as I drive past, no dog has ever hurled abuse at me as I walk in the street, no dog has ever overturned garden planters outside my house need I go on. Yes I would rather talk to people and discuss issues than hide behind curtains and take photographs but each to their own. As for common sense surely common sense would say that people would teach their children to respect people and property but that is not always the case either. I pick up after my dog and so do most other people if only most parents were as responsible.

You must think that I sit at my window watching and waiting for people to let their pets dirty on public footpaths and grassed areas without cleaning up after them. You are saying that common sense should be used in these situations, but surely to goodness these people can see that there are stickers on most lamp posts and on the areas I am commenting on there are three dog waste bins within a 150 metre stretch, to me, common sense would state that these would be used. Yet again I will state that why should I have to clean the mess off the kids shoes when these folk with all the common sense leave the mess there in the first place.

Comment: While I as a dog owner agree totally that I should be, and I am, responsible for cleaning up after my dog, I find it a sad state of affairs when Big Brother is watching and sending photos to dog wardens etc. Would you take my photo when, as happened on Saturday, I took my dog out and he had more poo’s than anticipated and I ran out of poo bags, knowing I had to go out again I left the mess, went home (approx 2 mins walk away), dropped the dog off, picked up the car and on my way  to the town stopped and picked up my dogs mess. This all took about ten mins. If that is all that upsets you on a day to day basis then you must have a wonderful life. So far I have had glass broken outside my home, almost run over by children on peddle cycles, a garden wall vandalised etc. but chose to address the issues with common sense and spoke to the people and parents of those involved, and hey presto, problem solved, minimal fuss. I did not feel the urge, nor did I have the time, to take photos of the events in action.
