Jim, thanks for the information it confirms everything in my family tree.  Mrs McGlen in the photo would have the maiden name Hobson. Eggy, Is the it ok if I use the photo in my records?  Also for my records can you tell me Bellas married name.

@Rigger - no problem - any photo I post is for sharing.

As for Bella's maiden name that will be down to @jimmcglen

Wow! Wat a blast from thi past for me!

Hi Eggy,and all on the forum!First off,Billy McGlenn didn't play in my Rock  group,in the 1960's.

I have known Billy practically aal me life,and when we left school in 1959,[Billy was at the Catholic school],we both started our pit training together at Seaton Burn colliery training centre.

Billy was a small blonde lad,very sociable and a born comedian,served his time at the pit,then left later on to join the Merchant Navy.


That was just me being lazy Bill - thought I remembered you mentioning Billy McGlenn before but I didn't bother searching - just guessed:D.

Thanks everyone for the all information provided. I have learnt so much about the people I knew in the distant past from this post. It's good to know so many are still around.  Whilst I no longer live in Bedlington I use this site frequently to keep abreast of what is happening and enjoy the contents.  Thanks

@jimmcglen - I have been attempting to identify everyone in our old family photos and my London cousins have also sent me photos  to identify. One of the photos, outside No 11 Beatty Road, with two of my cousins, Sheila & Lawrence Moore (mother = Peggy Henderson) plus 3 children that I would assume lived in Beatty Road. The date of the photo would be c1960.

I can't remember the two faces on the right as you look at the photo but the lad on the left is definitely familiar but I haven't been able to drag a name out of my memory. Could he be a McGlenn?

    • 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.”
