 Welcome to the group @Terry Dixon

The housing area around Bolam Place won't have changed since 1977:)

Although I haven't lived in Bedlington since the mid 1970's i can remember some names from Bolam place as they were the lads I knocked around with in the 1960's - Dixon - Lightley - Trench & Thompson. Those families all lived in the houses that faced the green looking towards Waverley Avenue :-

Would that have been Gerry Dixon who joined the Merchant Navy, along with Robin Hills, in the mid to late 1960's?

We always referred to Mary Miller as 'Little Mary' and I though she lived in Waverley Avenue - about No 20/21 across the road from Bolam Place.
