As schools throughout South Tyneside celebrate Harvest Festival time, we thought we would look back at some of the traditional food and flower collections from the past.
With many schools using the occasion to distribute produce to pensioners as well as raise money for good causes, the annual event is particularly popular with children.
Pupils from Harton Junior Mixed School in South Shields appear twice in our picture selection.
From 1984 comes a photo of Westoe Infants School pupils handing over a cheque to Save the Children; the proceeds of a Harvest Festival festival of flowers.
Finally, we have a colour snap of Mortimer Primary School youngsters, with their Harvest Festival fare. What do you remember about your school’s Harvest Festivals?
