  1. Yesterday
  2. @Jill Baskerville - No 9 updated and I will update the posting on the Facebook Bygone Bedlington group where Margaret Kersey posted the photo.
  3. Hi Alan, could you change No 9 on the hockey team to Jill Carrigan please?
  4. Authorities have a very strange tendency to overlook obvious things. This also applies to actions to protect forests, and actions to protect natural medicine (Click Through The Following Article). This is in spite of the full proof of the utility of both. It is sad that one person cannot change this.
  5. Access to the site where Mansel Dinnis help his BGS photos is no longer available and Mansel has not responded to the eamil I sent him a few months ago.
  6. No 14 confirmed as Edwin Wilson by Brenda Wilson off the Cambois Facebook group.
  7. Last week
  8. Sixth form at Ford Castle - 1968. Photo from Mansel Dinnis's Movie & Memorabilia Website. When I went back to the Movie & Memorabilla website, to update Mansel's copy of the photo with the couple of names from the Bygone Bedlington Facebook group, the website was closed down. I emailed Mansel, over two months ago, and I haven't had a reply back
  9. It was founded in 1926 as Bedlington Secondary School for the areas of Bedlingtonshire, Ashington and Newbiggin, being built next to Bedlington railway station. Subsequently it became Bedlington Grammar School, before turning comprehensive in 1974. It gained Maths and Computing College status in 2009. Ex pupils you should know :- Sir Bobby Charlton CBE & Sir John Hall, who built the MetroCentre
  10. Confirm 26 is NOT Pat Brown
  11. Don't know the exact year the school was built. I would assume there would be some colliery rows built when the colliery was due to start production. The Durham Mining Museum does not have a year against when the colliery was opened but it does have 1982 as the first year coal was output. The First Edition of the OS map of the Cambois area held on the National Library of Scotland is 1859 (published 1865) and there is no colliery or houses. The Second Edition - 1896 (published 1898) shows the colliery, many pit rows and the school etc.
  12. No 3, Brian Finch, has confirmed No 14 is Mary Smith - '?' removed.
  13. Photo from ex head boy Mansel Dinnis's collection and names from me. As Kingsley Wake is younger than some of these players I am guessing the photo is from 1961 when Kingsley was in the Lower Sixth.
  14. School trip to Ford Castle in 1957 - photo from Brian Thompson and names from the Bygone Bedlington group members.
  15. Photo and names from Margaret Hersey - Bygone Bedlington Facebook group.
  16. Photo and names from Margaret Heresy - Bygone Bedlington Facebook group.
  17. Following last week’s Annual Meeting of the Town at West Bedlington Community Centre, there was some criticism on social media that residents had not been made aware of this event, (despite it being on their website for 3 weeks prior, in the newsletter and shared on Facebook.) On Tuesday it is the turn of East Bedlington Parish Council to hold their Annual Assembly. In order to try and divert any future criticism that no-one knew, I am attaching the agenda for this meeting below for your information. Last year there were no residents from East Bedlington in attendance. This is your opportunity to find out what is happening in your area, meet and ask questions of your local Councillors and raise issues concerning your local community. Discussions with your local representatives can often prove to be more informative than relying solely on social media. At the end of this meeting there will be light refreshments. Hope to see you all there.
  18. To be honest, I am very happy for the current students, because they have more opportunities for education and even help services, such as this one https://copycrafter.net/term-paper-writing-service.html. In our time, it was much more difficult to solve problems with learning and getting an education had a lot of effort.
