Schools, shops and pubs have hosted great events and the Shields Gazette’s photographers have been there to record them.
We found these archive photos from an Irish bar, winners of St Patrick’s Day hampers, and dress-up day at a school.
Take a look and see if these scenes bring back wonderful memories.
