We reported this week how people who served their communities through Covid would be performing the honour of switching on lights in the borough as a thank you for their efforts.
It inspired us to take a look at the magical memories of lights being switched on all over South Tyneside in the past.
We have a snowy South Shields in 2003 and Hebburn in 2008. Were you pictured in Jarrow in 2014 or perhaps spotted at the Cleadon lights ceremony in 2—5?
We have all this and more in a festive feature of the past so join us as we switch on those seasonal memories.
