Water, cricket, thinking and peace - they're all national days which have been celebrated in South Tyneside
What do teaching assistants, libraries, cricket and water have in common?
The answer is they all have national or world days which are dedicated to them and which have been recognised with events in the South Tyneside area in years gone by.
There’s a national or world day of awareness for most things these days and the people of the borough are fantastic at remembering them all – from the ones which sent a vital message to the more light-hearted.
Shields Gazette photographers have visited the Central Library and St Bede’s RC Primary, in South Shields, Epinay School, in Jarrow, Cleadon Village Kindergarten and Bede Burn Primary to capture these images of people supporting awareness days.
