From what you have commented am I right to assume you have viewed the albums in the Gallery - Netherton/Nedderton old photos - Netherton/Nedderton old photos 2 - The End of Netherton Colliery -  Netherton Colliery Railway Engine 1970  - Scotts of Netherton  &  Netherton Colliery Band ?

@Canny lass :- not the store but close by. This comment and photo posted on the Bygone Bedlington Facebook group by Gordon Smith,a local historian, lives in Blyth :- 9 June, 1966. Mr W. Winslow, left, Vice-President of the Bedlington branch of the Royal Naval Association hoists the White Ensign to mark the opening of the new branch headquarters at Netherton. The new headquarters is in the former Netherton Social Club which moved to new premises three years ago. The extensive renovations have cost £15,000. It is the only RNA club between the Tyne and the Tweed and Mr E. Gurney the branch chairman feels it will be well supported. "We have a strong sea-going tradition in the area," he said. BNAP Thursday 16 June, 1966.

I added the text and a couple of members have named 3 of them :-

A couple of members think that No 4 is Jackie Cunningham and another that No 3 might be Joe Coleman.

Do you know any names for this photo?

@Hursty - is your dad in this photo? I've highlighted part of the text above where your dad gets a mention.

      Police are investigating a Bedlington care home where inspectors say some elderly residents weren't kept safe.
      Medicines had allegedly gone missing at Baedling Manor Care Home, while the local authority was called in to monitor the home's safeguarding arrangements.
      The home's 49 residents "did not always experience safe care and treatment", inspectors from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) said.
      The CQC said it had launched an inspection after being contacted with concerns about "safeguarding people, staffing, recruitment, medicines, infection control, consent, complaints and the governance of the service".
      Downgrading the home, run by Alcyone Healthcare, from 'Good' to 'Requires Improvement', the report said: "People were not always safeguarded from the risk of harm. Incidents were not reported or recorded properly, and action was not always taken to address matters.
      "The home was placed into organisational safeguarding by the local authority and there were police investigations in progress."
