Don Lynn had a butchers shop in the oval in the 60s.

I remember going in one morning for the daily order of 6 pasties for the 10 o clock tea break for lads I was serving my time with. Don could'nt wait to show me something that looked like an iron bar, he threw it on the floor and when it bounced he said "do you know what that is"? before i could answer he said "its a rabbit" The days of frozen food were here and Don was amazed at how long it could be kept in storage. His shop had the reputation as the best in Bedlington. Not sure if the rabbit was for his own use or if he intended to sell them. David is certainly same Family but I'm not sure what relation.

Don is gone now, I'm not sure if Jean is still alive though. Don was a founder member of the motor club with my dad. Don also worked with my dad as butchers together. Arthur Routledge took over the shop in the oval

I know I'm going back a bit but does anyone remember when the butchers at the oval was Wakes butchers or pie shop before Don Lynn's. There pies were fantastic I've never tasted anything better since they used to queue for them.

I think Pete mentioned Wakes once. He's the one to ask

    • Film star Anthony Quayle featured in memorable war movies from Ice Cold in Alex and the Battle of the River plate to The Eagle Has landed, the Guns of Navarone and Lawrence of Arabia.
      But his actual wartime exploits saw him serve as a key figure in a “secret army” being readied in Northumberland in case Germany had invaded during the Second World War.
      The then Captain Quayle was intelligence officer for the Northumberland and Scottish Borders hand-picked patrol units, most of whose members were drawn from the Home Guard.
      If an invasion had taken place, they would have gone underground and later re-emerged as a resistance army of snipers, trained in unarmed combat, explosives and sabotage.
      The actor’s involvement is recounted in a new book which focuses on how the war impacted on people in the North East.
      Neil Storey and partner Fiona Kay, who live in Cramlington in Northumberland, have carried out extensive research in the region’s archives, and have also gathered material from newspapers and first-hand accounts of the time, and family stories.
