If no 5 is Jackie Hindmarsh,and it looks like him,then his twin brother was called Tommy,from Millfield,but the number nine doesn't resemble my memory of Tom.

They were both in my class at the Whitley,and I grew up,played down the woods etc,and eventually,Jackie delivered all the building materials for the National Coal Board,to all the Colliery hooses in the Bedlington/Ashington area,for donkeys years!....including to my first hoose at West Terrace,Stakeford.

Reet canny lads,both of them!

I'm referring to class middle remove 1958,Ray Barret was also in my Whitley class,he started Choppington High Pit,after me.

His Dad was Ventilation Officer at the pit,Uncle Joe was an Overman,Uncle Danny was a Deputy..all at High Pit,and Ray went on to the Surveyor's team.

Not the clearest of photos but can anyone recognize any of this lot from the first intake to West Ridge 1958?

The photo was posted on the Bygone Bedlington site by Joan Muckian.

Terry Foote - this one has just been posted on Facebook in the Bygone Bedlington group and the names I have added were written on the back of the photo.

Can you confirm the year & class name and add any more names ?

Cheers Terry - Margaret Speller had posted both sides of the photo on Bygone Bedlington site and when I saw the name Terry Foote on the back I remembered you had just commented on one of Jane Muckian's Westridge photos but I hadn't realised the photo came from your collection.

There was a comment, on the Bygone Bedlington site, by a Colin Sim and it was :- " 10 is Peter Low not George and 20s first name was Ivy". Do you agree with that ?

If it's Ok with you I will add your photo to the Gallery Album :- Westridge School - End of term class photos.

Heh heh!

This is the remains of the fi rst,and I repeat ..first...Upper Remove,and I would say it was taken after the 1960 summer GCE exams..[guessing on that bit mind!].

These aren't kids noo,they've grown up a lot since I left the class in 1959 to start the pits.[just as I was all hard muscle from puppy fat after a year  of hard labour!  Here we go.......

[4]Len Thompson [5]Michael Lucas [6] Ian Cambell [7] Eddie Hedley [9] Lorna Barker [13] Ted Smout [16] THINK! Miss Nicholson [teacher] [17] Lillian Moore

Racking me brains!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mind,half of the class is missing!....maybe some left to start work or failed exams and weren't present?????????//

I  also think that some of these pupils were integrated into the class after I left,cos I have written a list of those I can remember and out of 22 pupils, the ones above

are all that are in this pic.[7 out of 22!]

[15] Could be Trevor Hale,but unless he shot up in height,i'm wondering,cos he was a big broad-shouldered athlete at 15 yrs..the best runner in Northumberland at the time...a young Mo Farrow....nea bugga cud catch him on the track!...but he wasn't really tall....

I thought nr 16 might be the head girl. I remember the head girl as always having a 'sash' like the one she's wearing. She's also wearing the school tie which makes me think she's a pupil rather than a teacher. Just a thought.

Number 11 reminds me of George Mitcheson. Would that name ring a bell, HPW?

No 13 is Bobby Cross. After completing his GCE, he studied at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and was in a few movies.

I will attempt to make contact with the originator - Allana. I did send her a comment a couple of weeks ago but no response.

    • 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.”
