Jubilee fun at St Cuthbert's Avenue in South Shields.

Platinum Jubilee in South Shields: Families come together for epic street party in honour of Queen's 70-year reign

The four-day bank holiday in honour of Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee will live in the memories of a generation.

As the milestone celebration was recognised across the nation, families in South Tyneside and beyond came together to raise a glass to the Queen and thank her for a lifetime of service.

And at St Cuthbert’s Avenue in Horsley Hill, South Shields, it was a real team effort with the whole street joining in with the fun!

Many thanks to resident Gemma Wilkinson for sending us a great selection of pictures; we’re just sorry we can’t use them all!

She said: “The street came together, fundraising. It showed what a community can do when needed.”

The event was organised by Jimmy and Teresa Heslop, Gemma added. It took place on Monday, June 6.
