The International Day of Happiness is this week and we are celebrating with a look back at lovely reminders of events which put a smile on our faces.
We look in on a happiness class at Westoe Crown Primary School and join members of the Bedewell Grange residential home as they celebrate the Queen’s 80th birthday.
We have children enjoying a big day at Toner Avenue School in Hebburn and an anniversary to remember at the St Jude’s Church Mother and Toddler Group.
So join us on a journey of smiles.
