I think we need 3gee to help us here, It looks like that works wagon parked outside is being used to clear out Millne House and there is a co op vehicle (3 wheeler Scooter) parked outside. I think the co op took over that building after Mr Millne. C'mon 3gee help us.???? I'm guessing at 1970.

I would guess that the second pic was taken in the 50's/60's foxy with the VW camper in the picture and the other cars in the picture, would gamble and say 50's but not sure.

That looks like a Bedford Dormobile rather than a VW Adam.......... and please folks, Malcolm is just jealous of me getting a ride in those days (in a pram)

Great Photo Foxy, I recognise the Trotter Memorial, Trinity Church and the Dentists must of change the Dentists a bit over the years, but i would have a guess of the year 1955-56.

Keith, I honestly wouldn't know what a cup of coffee in Bacci's tasted like. Just read what Symptoms has to say about the place! Definitely not a place for the tender gender of Netherton. No, give me Jimmy Millne's any day. He was a great host as well. He went from table to table talking to everybody. Sometimes he'd greet you in the doorway, escort you to a seat, carry your shopping bag and get your coffee from the counter. Made you feel like royalty.

Symptoms, In answer to your query about the cafe at the station, that wasn't Bacci's. It was Moscardini's, or Moskies as it was better known. Can't remember the guy's first name. Pete would probably be able to tell you.

Joe Moscadini own the cafe at the station he also owned the billiard hall near the pictures His wife and son (Bernard) ran the cafe

Church on the left, then dentist's. Burdon House is behind the dentist's. It used to be a nursing home, built 1912, and my daughter lives there now. Why did they build it behind, or the dentist's in front? Very odd arrangement.

The big building behind the memorial stands where Grenfells now is and the big place behind or attached to it can't be there any more either. Any more info/pics on these gratefully received.

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
