And we have Norman Dunn to thank for the images from 1985 which have appeared on an online forum he runs called Hebburn and our Neighbours.

Each shows children on the move and Norman explained: “The school these children attended up to May 1985 was simply called the ‘Newtown School’ and it was on Station Road.

“Today it is long gone and replaced by a small park called Fountain Park opposite the shopping centre.

“The photos of the children were taken at the time of the move to Bedewell in May 1985,” said Norman.

Take a look and see if you can spot anyone you know.
