Len Stephenson is another sad loss to the board.He would ring me from Canada to talk and hear a Hebburn accent.
Ive told this coincidence on the Board previously, but new visitors might not have heard it.
I never met Len as he lived in Canada, but he often saw photos on my website that he wanted to talk about so he'd ring me. One day he saw a photo taken in Jarrow Park looking south towards where the tennis court was in the corner of the park. He couldnt remember the name of the street just out of the gate so I told him Wansbeck Rd. He said 'now I remember, cos I used to walk my friend Margaret Craig home from the Central School in the 50s (I think he said). He said her dad was a Policeman and they lived at number 78. The coincidence is I lived at 78 Wansbeck years later, 1979-1986.
