HAPPY Wearsiders made the most of the Sunderland sunshine – but forecasters are warning it’s about to get nippy.
Scores of people flocked to scenic spots such as Barnes Park and the coast at Roker and Seaburn yesterday, to make the most of the warm spell.
And little ones at Seaham Harbour Nursery School celebrated St George’s Day with sunshine.
Children at the Bottle Works Road nursery made flags and badges with the emblem on and the school’s mascot bear, Barnaby, got dressed up as St George himself.
Sue Wilson, assistant headteacher at the nursery, said: “We try to celebrate all the special days throughout the year, and St George’s Day is one of those.
“They had a lot of fun and really enjoyed themselves. It also helped that it was a lovely sunny day.”
As part of the English-themed day the children had cucumber and ham sandwiches and Victoria sponge cake for snack time.
Sadly, sun lovers shouldn’t pack their winter woolies away just yet as the Met Office is predicting that the weekend – in particular tomorrow – will be a washout.
Forecasts say that temperatures are unlikely to be any higher than 12ºC, and could even be as low at 2ºC by Sunday.
