  1. It was a strange co-incident Bill because we had intended to go to Morpeth, but when we got there the main street was close owing to some sort of festival. That's how we ended up down the woods for a walk. Anyhow it was great to meet you and your wife and of course not forgetting Jesse. Perhaps we will have another chance meeting in the future but Corvid is the big sticking point at the moment, I have not been able to visit good old Bedlington for over a year now as Leicester seems to be stuck in a permanent lockdown. Take care and keep safe.

    Brian, its good to hear your on the mend, I was wondering were you had got to as you have not been on for some time but that explains it. All the best for Christmas and the New Year. Will you be having a barbaque on Christmas day? Vic, it sounds like its mighty cold over there so no barbaque for you unfortunately. All the best for Christmas and the New Year. Have you seen many deer this winter?

    Happy Birthday Andy, hope you have a great day.
  11. The Olympics where originally called the Statesmen and changed their name to the Olympics, but as far as I am aware it was not due to the name of a Drum Kit. Memory fails when it comes to things long ago, I cannot remember why they changed their name, perhaps Alan can help?
  12. No Bill, it was Bob McGregor. I had a good week last week, stopped at Cresswell Towers for the week. Met up with a lot of old friends in Bedlington.
  13. As a said Bill a cud nivor spel propaley There was a few local groups around at that time, The Avengers as you have already mentioned, The Dynacords and the Olympics to name just three. I remember the Avengers and the Olympics used to practice at the YMCA at the station, I think Alan has mentioned that in previous posts. I remember the Dynacords used to practice in the Wharton but I did not see them much, it was good for Bedlington to have so many groups. Last time I was in Bedlington (a couple of months ago) I was talking to a friend of yours, Bill, Mr Mcgregor and hopefully will be having a pint with him again in September as we are coming up for the week.
  14. A niver could spel properley. But back to the question HPW, did the Dynacords used to practice in the Wharton?
  15. HPW, if I have got it right the Dynachords uses to practice at the Wharton. Did they have a female vocalist at one stage?
  16. Happy Birthday Foxy, hope you have a great day.
  17. Thanks Alan, a bit of good detective work there.
  18. Magic Alan, second image from bottom solves the problem of when the new YM was opened. Looks like 26th May 1961. Cheers mate
  19. Not sure if you have seen this, Alan and Richard? but it shows Bedlington United, Bedlington and Bedlington Terriers (Northumberland Senior Cup). Was there a team called just, Bedlington in the 90s? https://www.nufc.com/2018-19html/senior-cup-history.html
  20. Mostly Pigeons, but there was only a hand full of allotments there. Entrance was from the cut and they were sandwiched between the gardens of Pioneer Terrace and Waverley Avenue. I have not been past that area for a lot of years but I think they built houses or flats on that land both sides of the cut.
  21. Yes but on the right hand side, the left hand side was allotments. Right hand side was know as Moles farm.
  22. Looking at google earth I think Tullys may have been no 27, but to be honest I have never heard of Wingrove House. I remember Moles farm house on Pioneer Terrace.
  23. Could no 28 have been Tullys the dentist if not it must be pretty close?
