  8. @HIGH PIT WILMA - can pit names to all but one.
  9. I was there on the nights those bands were on. Our group of lads were there four or five nights a week as we used to get free passes from the guy/manager that ran the place. Before it opened we would call into the building on a Sunday afternoon, after having been to the Station Club - 12:00 till 14:00 for a few pints on our way down to the Welfare Park for a game of footie among the lads, and chat with the manager to see when it would be the opening night. It was mainly Bob Pattison & Alan Maguire that chatted up the manager and other staff and were given the free passes. As they all became friends there were free passes for many months, especially for through the week. My main memory of Dave Dee ,Dozy,Mick,and Tich was that I was mistaken, by young ladies who had had a load to drink, as Dozy and they leapt on me, knocking me to the floor and ravaged me until some dragged them off and said - not Dozy, it's Eggy
  10. @Maureen - I never went when it was Lucifers. Back in 1968 (or was it 1967 ?) when it first opened the DJ was John Shelley. @HIGH PIT WILMA - John Shelley - Then & Now
  11. That's the name, and width, I remember HPW - Buller and I believe he did wrestle, fortunately not with me .
  12. @HIGH PIT WILMA - Can't remember which group I found the newspaper cutting on or who gave the names but Malcolm Neslund, on the Facebook group Friends of Bates Colliery, has commented that the names someone had given me and I had added = No 3 TED REDFORD & No 5 BILLY SMITH are wrong and should be No 3 TOM WILKINSON & No 5 PHIL CLARK. Names updated :-
  13. I know what you mean Jack but on the older photos its often just a couple of people who list the maiden names and often aren't aware if they married. On the later photos I do try and add married names, within my comments when posting an updated photo, but again that's only when a member of this group or a Facebook group mentions it.
  14. Photo from Jacqueline Adamson - Bygone Bedlington Facebook group and names from Jacqueline, Jill Simpson Ritchie and Kathleen Petrie.
  15. The original school building was destroyed by fire in 1970. The old school building was replaced with garages and houses and the new school is still within the old school grounds.
  16. @Keith Batey :- this is the Barrington CP school album we have on page 2 in the Gallery > Historic Bedlington > Barrington County primary School :-
  17. @HIGH PIT WILMA - a new member on the Facebook group - Bedlington remembered - has posted this comment :- I don't know where the nursing home is but I have asked her a few questions and pointed her to a couple of possible places where she might get some info and memorabilia. I have not passed on any info about your photos of Bates but if she was after some photos would it be ok to pass on some of yours? If that was ok I would add some of the text that you have written to each photo.
  18. @BJT - There was South Row at Bedlington Station, next to the Bedlington 'A' pit, and a New South Row at the Top End of Bedlington next to the Doctor pit. The Doctor pit, and colliery rows, were at the bottom of the Glebe Bank and on the opposite side of the road there was Thompsons store. I can’t remember the store but I have seen many references to it and I believe it was opposite Doctor Terrace and there is now a car dealers, Cars4U North East Limited, in it's place . The photo of Thompsons shop is taken from one of Evan Martin's books on Bedlington. This is an extract from a 1924 map showing the South Row, next to the 'A' pit, at Bedlington Station. Can't remember anyone ever mentioning there was a Thompsons Store at Bedlington Station
  19. Photo from Layna Alexandrou-Panayiotou - Facebook group Bedlington Remembered. Layna did not know the exact year of the photo but we have another photo, dated 1930, in this album from Louise Scarr with the same teacher (probably the Headmaster) man wearing the exact same outfit as No 36 in this photo.
  20. Often referred to as the 'Council School'. Entry in https://communities.northumberland.gov.uk/005616.htm has the date c1916
