@Tonyp = What decade, 1960's or 70's or later, are you referring to and I will ask the members of the local Facebook groups if anyone remembers those two and has any info on them.

@Tonyp - replies to your question from the Bygone Bedlington Facebook group members :-

Tommy & Vi ran the Greengrocer shop, Tommy started the bingo in the shop next door to the greengrocers. He was a great musician and played at most of the clubs at some time or another but was at the Universal in Ashington for a long time. He often went to the computer shop that his son Joe ran but admitted that he had absolutely no idea how computers worked. Sadly both Tommy and Vi have passed away.

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
