Just caught up,better late than never!

Jimmy Nichol was the biggest lad in the class then,it seems,and by 1960,he was the biggest Coalfiller at Choppington High Pit,and his looks have never changed!

He was a commanding figure among the men,I saw him a few years ago at Amble boot sale,this may have been 50 years after the High Pit closed in 1965,and he was STILL  a big canny fella ,very sociable,and easy to get on with!! Some folk nivvor change!

When a moved to West Terrace in Stakeford,in 1970,me Nybors  a couple of doors alang,were the Yeouart Family.

Mr and Mrs Yeouart had a Family of Nine,if a remember correctly,and Mr Yeouart,and his Sons,were aal in the Ashington Male Voice Choir.

On a Saturday night,they used to come home from the Roughton Club,owa the road,tanked up,put tha arms aroond each other's shoulders,in a circle,and launch into song,Acapella,Barbershop style,and they Harmonised beautifully !

A was ,and still am,a teetotaller,and a used ti stand just inside me yard gate,and watch them,and listen in awe,as a musician mesel',at the skill of aal these tipsy big fellas,singing with such tone and feeling,and exactly on pitch...for being a wee bit owa the top wi the beer!!

Aa was only 24 yrs aad at the time,and they aal seemed like aad men,but in reality,with life's perspective,they might have only been in their late 30's or 40's !!
