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 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.”
