We’re having a heatwave and there’s never a better time to enjoy a refreshing ice cream.
With the temperatures likely to stay close to 20C into next week, you’ll need to make sure you enjoy some cooling refreshments.
We looked into our Gazette archives to find people doing just that in times gone by.
So why not chill and take a look at our reminders from across South Tyneside.
