8 South Tyneside archive photos to raise a smile - from jokes to red noses and balloon hats!

It’s time for happy thoughts as we celebrate one of the cheeriest events in the UK calendar.

National Smile Month started this week and we are marking the occasion with a look back at 8 Shields Gazette archive photos which show the borough at its happiest.

We have delightful reminders from St Matthew’s School in 2004 where they were telling funny stories and from Marine Park Primary School where balloon hats were going down a treat in 2010.

We’ve got Westoe Crown Primary pupils doing something funny for Comic Relief in 2009 and laughs aplenty at the Westovians Theatre.

But don’t just take our word for it. Take a look and put a smile on your face!
