Lynne Watson This is the photo I mentioned the other day in a different thread. My aunt worked in Cobbledicks shop which is the one on the very right of the photo almost hidden. My Dad found this photo many years ago and got a copy made.



This image shows more of the building :-

Has anyone ever heard of Cobbledicks ?

Reedy asked his dad, born 1928, and Reedy reported back with  :- Although before his time he thinks the building to the right of the clock house was a wages or timekeepers office. There was a shop on the Bebside bank on the opposite side of the bridge at the bottom of the hairpin bend run by a family called Munley.

Lynne Watson - replied -  Paul Reed thank you - that will be it. I do apologise for getting the shop in the wrong place 1f642.png🙂

    • A brand new service will offer life-long support to people with autism in South Shields.
      The new 'autism hub', opened by the mayor and mayoress of South Tyneside this month, will offer occupational therapy, mental health help and peer support for people with the condition throughout the area.
      Councillors say they're responded to a need created by an above-average number of people with an autism diagnosis in the borough, as parents, carers and those with a diagnosis told the council they needed more local support.
      One of those who can't wait to start using the new hub is little Jak Brunton, and his mum Jay.
      For Jak, who turns four on Monday, regular sessions at a Toby Henderson Trust centre in Bedlington have been a lifeline, helping him connect with his family and supporting them as they understand his needs.
      The Jarrow family travel at least once a week to Northumberland for invaluable one-to-one sessions, so the opening of a hub close to home in South Shields will make a huge difference to their lives.
