Memories of fighting with custard pie guns came shooting back for one reader when we featured online a photo of St Oswald’s Junior School performing Bugsy Malone in the 1980s.
Gayle White wrote: “I loved that play, so many memories. The fights with the custard pie guns, just great,” while Helen Williams (nee Pritchard) posted: “How adorable do we look?”
Gem Jean said: “Brilliant memories,” while Sarah Atkinson Belshaw also said “great memories”.
Meanwhile, a photo of jewellery-making classes WHIST, held at St Hilda’s Youth Centre in South Shields in 1988, prompted Jean Dack to say: “YMCA/SHARE project set this group up while I was working there. Gone from strength to strength and still going thanks to Beatrice (sorry, cant remember second name).”
