  1. Yesterday
  2. Nine police officers who had breakfast together inside a cafe have been fined for breaching COVID lockdown rules on duty. The officers, from the Metropolitan Police, were fined £200 each and told to "reflect on their choices." Unfortunately some of our heroes can be fallible,
  3. Unfortunately not as it wasn't Lewis Barker that posted the photo + comment on the Bygone Bedlington group. But I can, and will, ask Hazel Krzyzanowski that 'Shared' Lewis's posting (from somewhere on Facebook) if she is in contact with Lewis and if she will ask her . Let you know if Hazel replies. This is the full posting :-
  4. I don't suppose you could ask Lewis Barker, who posted the photo of the tray, where it was found? In Bedlington? If so where?
  5. I must have missed your album as i can't remember seeing those pages before. That's my bedtime reading sorted out for tonight! That Chronicle of events is very interesting, not only for the Tindal information. First. I can see that Netherton 'store' - the co-op - was established in Jan 1903 which fills another gap in my knowledge of Netherton. Second, I see that in August 1894 a "Mr R Studdy" was appointed General Secretary of the bedlington Branch. That's the father of Louis William Studdy, who i mentioned above as living in Jesmond with his aunt and uncle, Isabella and James Tindal. P.S. I've just found the entry in the register of deaths for John Davison Tindal. His death was registered in the third quarter (July/August/September) of 1947 which fits in rather nicely with the date on the tray.
  6. I must have missed Maggie's topic . Another member @graeme had posted pages from that book and I created an album in the gallery :- Page 47 of the book has the list of officers of the society and the Tindal Talor, as well as the secretary, gets a mention.
  7. CL - Church of Christ = Front Street West and the Lion Garage extended it's buildings replacing the church. Garth Cottage was next to the church and the church caretaker's family, Marley, lived in Garth Cottage. Mr Marley worked at the Dr Pit and he and his wife were church caretakers. I know that info as back in the 1950's I used to attended the Church of Christ Sunday School held in the single story building behind the church. The caretakers grand daughter also went to the Sunday School (as did @Ovalteeny) and I courted that young lady in the late 1960's and visited Garth Cottage many times.
  8. @claire Holmes - I will check on the Cambois Facebook group where the school photo, with Peter Calumboski, was first posted, to see if there are any other photos that have Calumboski family members on. No doubt @HIGH PIT WILMA will have a search through his memory to see if he has any info on your family.
  9. Last week
  10. Hello I know this was from a few years ago but I have just found it when searching for information on my family tree. Ada and Charlie Calumboski were my great grandparents. My grandmother was Sylvia, one of their children. I would love to see any more photos as they both passed away before I was born. Thank You
  11. This is a mystery ! See Maggie’s topic, started 26 July 2013 “Bedlington Equitable Industrial Cooperative Society”. I think that the John Davison Tindal (Secretary) named in the list of officers of the society is the same person. Note the name is spelled Tindal, rather than Tindall – as inscribed on the tray. The Tindal’s (one L) seem to have been a relatively well-to-do family in Bedlington - the type of family who could present such a tray. The 1881 census records the parents of John D Tindal living on Front Street, Bedlington. His father, James - born in Nottingham, is a tailor by trade and his mother Isabella (born about 1855 in Bedlington) has the same profession. They have, as well as John 4 years old and born in Bedlington, a daughter aged 5 years (Lizzie?) and another, Maria, aged one year. Hoever, they don’t appear to have always lived there. James and Isabella get a mention in in the North East War Memorial project in relation to Louis William Studdy, whose family are living in Ridge Terrace, Bedlington while he, Louis William, is resident at” 4 Fairfield road, Jesmond - with his uncle James Tindal, a tailor’s cutter and his wife Isabella, born 1855 in Bedlington”. By the time the 1911 census was completed, John D Tindal, was 24 years old and, like his father, a tailor by trade. He was then living in the last house on Burdon Terrace, nearest West End, and married to 29 year old Dora A.G Tindall, a Greengrocery shopkeeper. John D Tindal died 1947 aged 70 years (therefore, born about 1877). It may have been trough his tailoring that he was connected with the Cooperative Society. I can’t help wondering where the Church of Christ was/is situated in Bedlington and if the tray was found in the same building or somewhere else. Could it have been wrongly inscribed by the engraver and therefore never presented to the Church of Christ? Otherwise, it surely still belongs to the church? 1947 wasn’t so long ago.
  12. Hi buddy! For several months I had a very bad headache and I decided that it was time for me to do something about it. One of my friends advised me to buy the best CBD oil in 2021. I was very happy that I finally found a remedy for this pain. This oil really helped me a lot.
  13. This image posted on the Bygone Bedlington site. Does anyone on this group know the Tindall family?

  19. It was The Dunn Coo Bill. I can't remember the exact sequence the name changing took but something like = Millfield (when John Tudor took it over after he finished playing football for NUFC) - then changed to Connections - then back to Dunn Cow - then back to The Millfield and then La Torre, Italian restaurant, joined/partnered The Millfield and as far as I am aware that's how it is now.
