@Tonyp - I tell fibs (= I didn't read all your comment ) - I do a little on the Maguire's. Alan, the eldest and according to his Facebook page he lives in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne but I don't know where about.

Alan was my mate in the 1960's, along with a large group of us that spent many evenings in the Percy Arms, Station Road. I know Alan has commented on the Bygone Bedlington Facebook group this year. Last year he updated the names of this photo - Percy Arms dart team, 1973.

I don't know the exact year but I know after I had moved away from Bedlington, Alan's brother Mick was killed in a road accident outside the Percy Arms. I think it was the early 1970's.

I don't know about the rest of the Maguire family.

At No11 was mrs Barrass & her son Kieth he moved to Plymouth I believe Mrs Barrasses mum lived with them she died in the late 60's she was100 I think mrs Horsley she must have been born in the 1860's Mrs Barrasses husband was killed at bumasund pit I believe No12 was Bob & Nancy Cox they had 3 Sons Ronald Rob & Paul. Nancy was a Ward her brother was manager of Bedlington Terriers for years Paul died in the 80's at a young age with cancer No13 was Dickie &Marjorie Patterson they had a daughter forgetting her name now 14 Mr & Mrs Coates don't know much about them as they kept themselves to themself but if our football went into there garden they would keep it till one of our parents went banging on there door which always ended up in a row. No15 was a guy called Bill Short he had 1 arm he lost it at the pit he was a nice guy always remember we used to say to him "show us your arm". He did & took he's false teeth out & chase us at the time we were terrified but looking back it was so funny More to follow

Hi Marra's, I played with, Ronnie Leyland, and Alan Wilkinson, from my first day at the Village Infants School, Church Lane, from 1949,I sat next to Alan in the same desk all our school lives, and played doon the woods after school. They lived next door to each other in Millbank Place. 

My oldest (Deceased) Sister, played with and went to school with Millie Madison.. a lovely family, they live right across the green at the back row of houses. I knew Alan Maguire well, and grew up with him but were they not Catholics, i. e not Whitley Schoolers? 

There was a Bob Lyall Electrician at Bates, smashing natured lad, (as was Alan Maguire!) There was over a hundred of us lads from Millbank, the Haig and Beattie roads, the Hollymoonters, the Millfielders, and we aal just got on wi each other.. it was nowt like ye hear nooadays... lassies arranging ambush on a disabled lad and inciting lads to kill him.. what hae we cum ti? Tony, ye are reet thi aad folks used ti say ti us bairns, aye, we had nowt, but we were happy... 

Whey, lukkin back, we cud say the syem thing! WE had nowt eetha, rations were on, not even a jam sammidge till teatime, but we played oot aal day doon the woods, owa thi opencast mine, doon Barntin Tip... THI TIP!! lukking for pram wheels ti mek a bony!

They were happy days!

      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.
