lets look back at Hartford Hall as a rehabilitation centre .

It wern't just for miners. I been there myself in 1981 after an accident.

Lets see if we can put a name to faces beginning with 1982.

I'm not 100% sure but the one in the top middle looks like Alec Turner The lodge chairman of Bates Colliery in 1985.

That looks like Bill Greaves, from Church Avenue. Second one in the back row, with glasses on. Was the lady physio called Joyce?

@Marie Sillars - can't tell you who they are Marie. If you select the johndawsonjune1955 tag, next to his posting/comment, you will see his profile and see it was April 2015when John last logged into the site. John runs a Facebook site - the sixtownships history group as well as a sister group, Coal Mining Memories UK where I think he will also have posted this photo. I will see if I can find it on the sixtownships site and see if anyone in the photo has been named.

Posted the photo on the Bedlington remembered Facebook site Marie and Dough reckons No 20 is Heather, but can't remember her surname. He also says that there was a physio call Joyce Miller that was known as the 'Daffodil Lady' - if a patient could grip a daff, between their butt cheeks, after back and leg physio, they were on the mend.'

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
