Welcome news for Blaydon

I was really pleased to hear the news today that the former Dairy Farmers of Great Britain creamery in Blaydon has been bought out by Medina Dairies, Britain's largest independent dairy group, and the announcement that production will start soon, with 50 jobs initially. This is good news for the economy of Blaydon and hopefully lead to more jobs in the future.
Losing the Dairy Farmers of Great Britain creamery was a blow for local people. Hopefully the plant will prosper under its new owners. I still believe more could have been done by the council and government to save the dairy and its 300 jobs but this is a fresh new start and great news for a local unemployment situation that has been set back by the deepest recession in over 50 years.
