Can Anyone Remember Either The Muter Or Wade Family

Recommended Posts

Doing some research on the building on rothesay terrace which is where I currently work it is now a care home. I have been told Muter family and wade family have lived there, apparently Muters lived there 50s 60s 70s. Im interested in when the wade family lived there, I do believe there was stables there? And may has possibly been a doctors or vets at some point too. Would really appreciate any information :) x

I know Jack Muter lived there in the 80's.

I worked for Muters Soft Drinks, and helped him move in the late 80's, He moved to Ponteland,

The Back of the house was stables and a garage, that is where David Muter (Son) kept his racing car.

The Wade family were farmers. The farmhouse was behind where that large house is being built now which is actually in what was the garden/orchard. The Muters operated the pop business at Liddles st Bedlington Stn [James transport were there at the time too] S&M auto's are there now. I am sure one of the Muters was a founder member of Bedlington & District Motor Club as was [among others] my father Jack Scantlebury.

I remember the Wade family, John Wade was a friend of my brothers,Ialso remember old Cud, had a few clips round the ear from him, we spent many happy hours playing in the barn and round the rick yard. Tdrie to the farm was u shaped with one entance next to the entrance to the cricket club and the other next to Muters house. I cant ever remember the wades living anywhere other than inthe big farm house that stood at the top of the u drive, Iremember the was a high wall around a courtyard which we used to climb up an sit and watch the pigs being killed, until old Cud saw us and chased us, if he caught us it resulted in a clip round the ear, happy days!

Yes, they are my cousins. They lived at Kelso Gardens, and we lived up the hill in Waverley Avenue.

Hi Kieth, are you related to a Helen Scantlebury that went to Westridge School in the sixties? She was in my class. It is an unusual surname, which is why I asked.

Orloff, Helen is also my cousin. It can be a bit confusing sometimes because my wife is also called Helen and as you say it is not a common name. If you whent to west ridge at that time you may remember the Coulthards, Richard, George, Gordon and Elizabeth (now Noble) they are also my cousins. Edited by keith

Keith, It seems that a lot of my age group have moved away from the homeland. I went at 16 cos my parents did, but I doubt wether I would've if they hadn't, I consider them to be quite brave or desperate or a bit of both. Am I right in thinking that your cousin Helen took up nursing or is my memory playing tricks again! Going back to Muters pop, I can remember the rather excellent product, and if Wade had an orchard near Allgood Terrace, then I can remember scrumping on the way home from school!

keiths got a good collection of muters old mineral water bottles from his family.

Thought these pop bottle labels would bring back some memories. I found them while scratching around a Junk Shop in Durham last weekend.

    • Northumbria’s Mini Police has gone from strength to strength as the newest recruits have all now enrolled on to the scheme.
      Last month the force announced it was extending the popular scheme, aimed at year five primary school children, after its successful launch in April.
      Now, all of the new recruits have taken up their position as Mini Police and are playing their part in policing.
      The scheme gives primary school children the chance to work with their local police and learn about a host of topics to help keep them and their friends safe.
      Superintendent Sarah Pitt has been instrumental in setting up the scheme.
      She said: “I’m really proud we’ve been able to extend the Mini Police scheme, it has proved to be really popular and it’s been encouraging to see how many schools want to get involved and I hope our newest recruits enjoy their new role.”
      Unique to the Northumbria scheme the Mini Police is led by the force’s Volunteer Police Cadets.
      Supt Pitt added: “Our Volunteer Police Cadet scheme has ran for a number of years now and we’re very impressed by the young individuals who join the scheme as young teenagers and develop into confident young adults and wanted to give them the opportunity to develop their leadership skills even further and they play an instrumental part in delivering the Mini Police.”
      Recruitment for the Volunteer Police Cadet scheme is currently open and will run until the end of October. Visit Northumbria Police’s Career website for details on how to apply.
      There are no  school children enrolled on the Mini Police scheme with the schools now involved including:-
