IT’S not only the Queen who has been celebrating her Diamond Jubilee this year.
It’s also 60 years since Wark Cricket Club was founded, and to mark the occasion, a special reunion dinner was held at the Boatside Inn at Warden.
Memories of wickets and innings of long ago were recalled, including the glorious 1970s, when the club won the West Tyne League Knockout Cup three times in four years.
The first winners in 1971 were the team above, and they also took the trophy in 1972 and 1974.

AT a public meeting in Wylam Institute it was decided to split the remaining money in the village's peace celebration fund between the village schools and a planned war memorial to the Fallen.
A brass plaque bearing the names of 19 former students who died in the Great War was to be erected in the Wylam Council Schools at a cost of £20 and £30 was to be donated to the war memorial fund.
