Arrested at: North Shields Police Station
Arrested on: 18 April 1905
Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-69-Angelo Reciti

The Shields Daily News for 19 April 1905 reports:

"ALLEGE USE OF THREATS AT NORTH SHIELDS. HUSBAND AND WIFE CASE.

At North Shields Police Court today, Angelo Reciti (29), residing at 8 Clive Street, was charged on a warrant with unlawfully using threats towards his wife Elizabeth, whereby she fears he will do her some grievous bodily harm, on the 18th inst.

Sergt. Geo. Murray spoke to apprehending the accused about a quarter past eleven o’clock last night. In pursuance of a warrant, he proceeded to 64 Elsdon Street and there found the accused concealed under a bed. He got him out and he thereupon became very violent. Witness had to get the assistance of two other police officers to hold him. The wife of the the prisoner had been obliged to leave the town in consequence of his threats towards her. At present she was staying in Jarrow. The accused was remanded until tomorrow to give his wife an opportunity of attending the court".

This wasn’t the first time that the Magistrates had become involved in Angelo and Elizabeth Reciti’s marital disputes. The Shields Daily Gazette for 26 October 1904 reported:

"At North Shields to-day Angelo Reciti, Italian shoemaker, was charged with deserting his wife Elizabeth. Mr G.W. Chapman defended.

Complainant, who is only 16, said they had been married since March and resided at Camden Terrace. On Saturday last, at defendant’s request, she went to visit her mother at Jarrow, and on returning in the evening she found nothing but the four walls. The defendant had removed all her furniture and her clothing. She was a present living at 57 Church Way.

By Mr Chapman: She admitted having declined to live with her husband if he removed into Clive Street. Defendant said that five or six weeks ago he went to Manchester in search of employment and when he returned he discovered that his wife had sold off the furniture and gone to live with her mother. He wished to go into Clive Street for convenience in his business, and when he spoke to his wife about removing she declined to go with him.

The magistrates granted a judicial separation, the defendant to pay his wife 5s a week. Defendant was also charged with threatening the life of his wife’s sister and was bound over to keep the peace for six months".

JERUSALEM (April 15, 2013) – Cardinal Seán and a group of 29 priests of the Archdiocese of Boston have traveled on an Easter pilgrimage to the Holy Land this week, and they’re bringing the readers of TheGoodCatholicLife.com blog along with them.

On the last day of their pilgrimage, the pilgrims began by walking the Via Dolorosa, the Way of the Cross, the path through the streets of Jerusalem that Jesus walked with the Cross to the Crucifixion. After celebrating Mass, they thanked those who had taken care of them on their pilgrimage and prepared for their flights home. As they waited, news of the bombings at the Boston Marathon back home reached the pilgrims and they united themselves in prayer with those who were hurt, their families, and the emergency workers who rushed to care for them.

All this week, our colleague George Martell is traveling with the pilgrimage, embedded with the Cardinal and his priests so we can bring you photos, blogs, videos, and audio reports from the Holy Land from the pilgrims at such places as the Basilica of the Annunciation, Mount Carmel, the Sea of Galilee, the Church of the Transfiguration, Qumran, the Mount of Olives, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Upper Room, and more. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to walk in the footsteps of Jesus with Cardinal Seán and the Archdiocese’s priests as an Easter retreat experience.

Please stay tuned to www.thegoodcatholiclife.com, as well as www.BostonCatholicPhotos.com and www.YouTube.com/BostonCatholic and our Facebook Page at www.facebook.com/bostoncatholic and Twitter account: www.twitter.com/bostoncatholic for the latest updates from the Holy Land.

Ready to go when sending a parcel to Morocco

Morocco is a country in the North of Africa and is steeped in history and culture. The history of the country spans over 12 centuries so a trip here will offer you plenty to do. With a growing population that currently stands at just over 35 million, there are plenty of opportunities for people to experience and you can be sure of a warm welcome. The growing population, coupled with a healthy economy means businesses have looked upon Morocco as a potential expansion plan.

The Moroccan economy has, since the early nineties, being stabilised and is considered a very liberal economy. This is because many industries that were previously government controlled have since been privatised and as such the economy now runs off a supply and demand. This is great news for UK businesses that may be thinking of moving into the country as it shows they are encouraging foreign investment. Despite this, any move into the Moroccan industry must be researched carefully and the logistics of a move here have to be considered.

When we talk about logistical areas we mean, making sure that anything that has to be sent from the UK to Morocco and vice versa can be done in the most efficient and cost effective way possible. Cost effective may be the most important thing here because in the past, sending a parcel or package to Morocco was not the easiest thing to do and could take weeks for the package to arrive but with the online couriers that are now available, you can sort out the whole delivery online with minimal fuss and you can have your parcel picked up from a home or work address, making it easier for you.

There may be a few people you know who have recently moved out there and there are plenty of reasons why they would. The country is steeped in history and culture; the cuisine for one is considered to be one of the most diverse in the world and is enjoyed by many people all over the world as it is like no other cuisine in the world with a variety of tastes and spices making it unique. Literature and music are also popular pastimes in Morocco and can be enjoyed by all visitors there.

Morocco parcel delivery is going to grow in popularity with a thriving economy and a great culture so if you are looking for the leading international delivery options make sure you search online.

Due Diligence – Experiences of a Western Woman Researching Property in Morocco

morocco music
by herr_S

As part of any due diligence process, a visit in person is recommended. This helps get a feel for the country and place in question. Understanding a country’s culture, lifestyle and the people helps establish whether a property purchase is appropriate for an individual. In this case it was Saidia, Morocco.

So the first cultural difference is the manner of driving in Morocco. It is very different from driving in Europe. It is either the way in Morocco, or development has come at such a fast pace for Moroccans, they almost don’t seem to notice when they wander into the road and are completely unperturbed by the presence of moving cars. Drivers seem to choose which lane to travel in, rather than adhere to any kind of accepted code of motoring conduct. This is something holiday-makers will need to get used to.

Currently most of the decent hotels are an hour away in Oujda (until the opening of the upmarket hotels on the Saidia site this summer). Oujda is a typical Moroccan town. Being in more traditional surroundings provides the chance to glimpse the real Morocco, the surrounding area of Saidia and the facilities potential property buyers could expect. It also gave a great insight into the ease of transportation and getting around.

The second cultural difference is how the men and women live. In Oujda if a woman wants to relax with a mint tea, so much a part of daily Morocco, then this is done at home. Cafes are mainly full of men, with not a woman in sight. Evidently there are some boundaries that differ between continental European norms and a Muslim nation.

The antithesis to this was Saidia, which in contrast has quite a cosmopolitan feel. Local women and foreigners happily mingle in the restaurants and cafes, without any of the staring that can be found in the more traditional towns.

The sheer scale of what is being created in Saidia creates a significant impression. Lots of beach side properties have been built, next to golden, sandy Mediterranean beaches. The Moroccan beaches are the mirror image of Spain’s but without all the same level of development. It certainly has a magnetic pull. This is where visiting in person brings a property to life. There are few developments in Europe on this scale and size. Seeing is believing.

It is always reassuring to prospective buyers to see a development under way. It is at this point that website details and specifications, direct from the developers, can be checked out fully. Although it did seem that pockets of work were focused around the hotels and one or two residential blocks. There had been some delay owing to a number of reasons e.g. weather and the relevant licences taking longer to come through.

It is not only good to see progress to date, but also to gauge how quickly things are moving on and the likely completion dates. Getting first hand experience of a developer, how they approach a visit and the answers they provide to questions, acts as a proxy for how they are likely to behave through the buying process.

There is certainly no better way of conducting due diligence than going in person to a development, or at least speaking with someone who has.
