Nine pictures from South Shields seafront as punters enjoy first Friday after outdoor reopenings
Friends and families have been starting the first weekend after reopening day in style at the seafront.
South Tyneside’s pubs, bars and restaurants have been allowed to open for outdoor service since Monday, April 12, as have outdoor attractions such as the fair.
But for many people, this weekend will be the first chance to enjoy their restored freedoms, catching up with friends and families, and enjoying everything from an al fresco cuppa to something stronger in the sunshine.
Stay safe everyone!
