Newbiggin Hall

  • Description

    I asked my Mam some questions about her memories of moving to Newcastle. My Mam moved when she was ten because my Grandad got a job teaching in a college. My Mam moved from Blackpool in 1981 she had to leave all her friends behind , make new friends and go to a new school . My Mam enjoyed growing up in Newbiggin she made friends and played with them she had to borrow a friends bike because she didn't own one. My Mam used to ride a bike up to Wylam. My Mam used to go horse riding in Kenton. She had a paper round, and owned an Alsatian named Zolta. She went to walbottle high school. She is very fond of the house in trevelyan drive because it was her 2nd house in the North East and was the very first house I visited as a "baby". I was supposed to go to the primary school just round the corner from their house but they moved abroad to Crete just before I was due to start there.
