Bedlington Village School, Church Lane - old phot

Recommended Posts

Elizabeth Foster (Bedlington Remembered Facebook site) is wondering if anyone can identify any of the kids in this 1950 Class 4 photo? 

The only info she knows is that her husband, Bob, is in the back row.

Here's an older photo c1928. This was posted on the Bygone Bedlington site by Tracey Temple with the comment :-  'My Aunty is trying to remember some of the children in this photo, taken approximately 1928/29 at the Infant school that was opposite St Cuthberts. if anyone can fill in any gaps for her she will be very happy! She is coming up to 95, to give an indication of the age the kids will be now.'

Tracey asked me to post the photo here to see if anyone in the photo can be identified, naturally as a distant relative to the members on here.

I remember a guy called Tommy Darling (No3?) who ran a shop down at Grange Park back in the '60s, can't for the life of me remember what he dealt in, just that he was a nice guy. He was a friend of my fathers.

There were two Tommy Darlings in Bedlington, if this is the one from Grange Park he dealt in Fruit and Veg/ General Dealer. The other worked for Prudential Insurance.

@wdmytrenko - thanks for the update. 

We have an Album within the Gallery under  Historic Bedlington for each of the Bedlington schools. The Village school is on Page 2. The 1950 Class 4 photo, + a bit that was missing from the first photo that was posted, with names is in the Album.

The  photos were post on Facebook . Unfortunately they weren't scanned ( just a photo of the photo) so the quality is not that good. 

Have you managed to download a copy of the photo with names from this site and would like the 'mashup' full photo with 26 children without the names?

    • 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.”
