Sorry @Bill Scott I hadn't noticed your comment. Are you the Bill Scott I knew back in the 1950's, leaving Barrington CP July 1960?  Have you had a look through the photos for Barrington County primary School = Gallery>Historic Bedlington - Page 2. If your the Bill I knew then there is a photo of you - Class 2, 1954🙂

Hello @Bill Scott - yes I remember Geordie Dickson - he is on the same photo as me - Class 6, 1960 in the Barricton CP album. 

Now you have my mind racing:) - I remember loads from Barrington but often the old mind can't match a name to many of those in the old school photos.

You will have started the A pit along with Norman Hills - Eric Tielman - Davey Bower etc. Did Robin Hills start the 'A' pit and then left to join the Merchant Navy with Ray ?????? (can't remember his surname - lived in Bolam Place, next door to Geordie Trench).   

Just remembered - think it was Ray Dixon☺️

Have you had a look through the Barrington CP album This is a direct link to it :-

      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.
