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

    • 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.”
