Snap a selfie with your favourite South Tyneside landmark for a chance to win £30 of high street vouchers

As the easing of lockdown restrictions across England continues today, many of us will be getting back out there and enjoying new freedoms.

Friday, 18th June 2021, 4:32 pm

From today (Monday, May 17) indoor hospitality and entertainment - including cinemas, museums, and children’s play areas - can reopen, and we can reconnect with friends and family in groups of up to 30 people outdoors.

So let’s all get outside and celebrate our favourite things about South Tyneside

To coincide with this latest easing of restrictions – and 172 years of telling the borough’s stories – the Gazette wants to bring you into the picture … literally.
