Here is a bit history for Reedys dad who compiled the list of pubs.

Scotland Gate Club was formed in 1910 in what was formerly a butcher's shop. In around 1957 the club planned to build new premises on land bought from the Ecclesiastical Commissioners for the bargain price of £500. On this site stood the Church of England School which the committee had planned to demolish to make way for the new building.

The club needed to build new premises for two reasons. First, the building only held 900 members and they needed larger premises to compete with other clubs. Secondly the old building was affected by subsidence.

The club began in what was formerly a shop and house belonging to a butcher called Tom Bowman. There was only a very small bar and sitting room in the building.

The first major extensions were carried out during the Second World War when a concert room was added. About the same time improvements were done to the bar to double its size.

We have only found the name of two founder members they are Mr. J. Cox, who was chairman of the first committee, and Mr. W. Jenkinson, who was a committee member. The first steward was Mr. Robert Donald, and the first secretary was a man known as "Fisher†Smith.

My Mother worked there in the fifties,the Stewards surname was Lockey or Locke he had a son Jimmy who would probably be about 65/70 years old now.

Keith - whilst searching for something else I came across a photo of The Bedlington Terrier pub on:- http://www.yourlocal...ngton/pictures/ It's probably my memory playing games with me but for some reason I thought I had read in one of the topics (that I can't find, now) that you had not managed to get a photo of The Bedlington terrier pub before it was demolished.

Yeah, I've got similar photos as well, Eggy, cheers anyway. We were just on about The Terrier today; it used to be a thriving pub. It kind of had two cultures - the afternoon drinkers - ex-miners, etc, and evening drinkers, us youngins, and If you weren't in by 8pm you couldn't get a seat. Then in later years they didn't even bother opening during the day. What a shame, it was once a great pub.

Just visited Charlton's at Cambois.

Brilliant!

Someone said it was owned by a relation if Jack Charlton.

Either way great place for a walk and then a pint.

Oops sorry a coffee..

    • 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.”
