One of them, can't remember which, also owned the Harbour chippy in Amble.
When I lived at the Warkworth house hotel, we were good friends with "Jimmy and Leila Bruce", they had the Harbour fish bar, at least 71 to 76, she was Italian, and was told off my dad, she was related to Sir Charles Forte, the hotelier, he was of Scottish decent, I think
