Youth Club

Post by baldy.smith » Thu Nov 30, 2006 6:59 pm

Anyone remember the youth club which was above the "Golden Lion".
If I remember correctly it was called "North Street Youth Cub". It was run bt a guy called John Ray.

Sorry o wise one ..I can only remember the Bader Boys Club in Beach Road
during the sixties ..after that it was drinking ..young liberals :oops: :oops: :oops: and it was all down hill after that ...A common sad but true tale of a young man gone wrong !!!!!! Youth clubs were designed to keep us on the straight and narrow ..but failed to keep us from evil :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
after that it was blues folk and wild wild hippy music !!!!!!

I remember Tyne Dock YC, although I didn't go there very often.
I was chairman of the Council of Youth for a few years, and used to visit a lot of the yc's, like TD, St Hilda's, Horsely Hill CC, Biddick Hall (which I think had another name), the YMCA, and the Yellow Hut in Whiteleas.

TD was one of the newer buildings, so had good facilities.

Was it part of St Marks church. Before I got married at St Marks in 72 I and my wife had to go and see the Rev John Maughn to have talks with him about our commitment to each other. I remember it was about this time that someone burnt the youth club down and the Rev told me if he got a hold of whoever did it he would give them a good hiding, I think it was hearing that a man of God was human and thought the same way as I did that kindled my interest in the church.

I've mentioned Tyne Dock youth club in a previous posting.
I was a member there in the early sixties, had some good times there.

Anna I also used to get the bus from Marsden to Tyne Dock, if I remember correctly it was the number 34 bus which used to go from Lizzard Lane Marsden through to the Bede Trading Estate, on the way back the girls from the factory there use to be on that bus, it was quite an experience getting home on that bus :lol:

I believe it was called St Marks & St Cuthberts. I don't think it had anything to do with St Cuthbert's school, though, as their YC was St Bede's, in the Parochial Hall on Imeary Street.

You never know Anna.
I remember the old Economics well, used to use them a lot.
Very intimate atmosphere on those buses.

St Cuthberts church was in King George Road on the other side to The White Ensign pub and the youth club there was a wooden hut. When the church was demolished the parish became St Mark and St Cuthbert when the new church was built in Quarry Lane. St Marks church was at Laygate.
I used to go to St Marys Youth club at Tyne Dock and was eventually helped run the club.

I was a member of Tyne Dock Youth club too and loved going there.

We used to get the Economic bus to Sunderland on the way to my nannas, they were a dark blue colour I'm sure, with nice comfortable leather seats and lots of polished chrome. Don't recall these buses being intimate tho' :shock:
mind you at age 6 you don't understand these things.

The Economic Buses were Maroon in colour with a broad cream strip!

They were more comfortable than the other buses because most of them were "coaches" as opposed to buses.

If I remember rightly Baldy---Northern busses were Maroon, Newcastle Corporation busses were Yellow and Cream and Sunderland Corporation busses were Blue and Cream.


I now await being shot to pieces over my bad memory.

Sunderland buses were green and cream! :wink:

Shields buses were blue and cream.

Northern buses are still the colour they have always been, red.

Still you got Newcastle right brian :lol:
