Bedlington Top Club

Recommended Posts

Anyone shed some light on the future of the Top Club - I notice that the building has now been sold?

I thought the Top Club burned down at the end of the 60s - where's the one you're on about?

Next to the post office.

It has been sold as a restaurant, I highly doubt that will happen though.

Yep ... that's the Post Office I remember. Are folks in Bedders still driving Mk2 Capris & Ladas (or Polanski Fiats) and renting their tellies from Rediffusion. Good to see the girlies being able to their latest stuff from Phillip Green's TopShop.

Yep, memory playing tricks! So I've just wandered down Front St on Google's Streetview to position stuff, funny how I thought the Post Office was lower down and was suprised to discover the Grapes as far down as it is ... I remembered it being higher up and had completely forgotten that the Blue Bell was there. I reckon the Top Club (the 'new' one) might have been Eddie Milne's house back in the day ... ??? or have I got that wrong as well?

Your both wrong,

Eddie Milne was the MP that wasn't quite whiter than white,In fact he was a load of crap just like todays MP. The house that you refer to was owned by Jimmy Milne a very respectable business man in the town, in fact he could be remembered as Mr Bedlington.Must get the facts right lads!!

Foxy,

Don't you have one of the old Top Club (Ex Serv) that ended up in the middle of the roundabout at the Top End and which the Green Goddesses attended?

You must be suffering memory loss Malcolm probably due to your age, thats the ex servicemens club in the first picture next to Robinsons the Printers.

OOPS!! I stand corrected, I knew full well it was Jimmy Milne. I think it was because symptoms and written Eddie Milne (mistakenly I'm sure) and that name became planted in my mind, therefore I agreed unwittingly. (thats my excuse and I am sticking with it Foxy)

My current wife worked there and she kept mentioning the fact that a crack in the wall beyond the stage (as you looked from the bar) near the fire door was getting bigger every day. No one would believe her so she put a mark against it every day. They then started to realise that they better get something done about it. The rest is history.

(Best I can do Keith.......)

Great pictures foxy......................

Foxy.... guardian and chief archivist of the pictorial heritage of Bedlington!

Agreed, if anyone is looking to raise funds for a good cause, they could maybe ask Foxy if he would donate a ride in his TARDIS as raffle prize. Edited by keith

    • A seven-year-old girl has brought her community closer together by creating beautiful messages of hope.
      Olivia Walker, from Bedlington, started by drawing a large poster to put on the fence for her next-door neighbours to see, because she "didn't want them to be sad when they were walking the dog".
      She then began to make more personalised posters, to display on fences or in her windows, aimed at cheering up other neighbours.
      The rainbow has become a popular symbol of hope within the pandemic over the two weeks, with many households displaying rainbows in their windows as a sign that this 'storm' will pass.
      But Olivia has taken it a step further with her personalised messages, drawing more for strangers online after her designs were shared on a local Facebook group and brought delight to many who saw them.
      The St Bede's R C Primary School pupil said: "I wanted to do it because people are along, and I wanted to make them happy. It makes me happy to see how much people like them."
