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?

      Almost two-thirds of residents feel the Government was too late introducing a local lockdown in the North East as Covid-19 cases continue to rocket, according to a ChronicleLive survey.
      Tighter restrictions were imposed across the region's seven council areas on September 18 in a bid to combat the spike in coronavirus cases.
      But numbers continue to soar at an alarming rate, with North East cases more than doubling to 2,524 in the week leading to September 21 from 1,107 in the previous seven days.
      According to Public Health England data covering the seven days to September 22, Newcastle now has the highest rate of infection in the North East and the fifth-highest in England – with the city’s numbers almost tripling.
      Newcastle recorded 632 new cases in that week, with an infection rate of 208.7 per 100,000 people. That was compared to 224 new cases and a rate of 74 in the previous 7 days.
      South Tyneside had previously had the second-highest rate in England, but is now eighth according to the latest figures. The borough recorded 301 new cases with an infection rate of 199.4 per 100,000.
