Eight great pictures of the Vaux sports day in Sunderland in the 1980s

A sports day which attracted huge crowds gets our retro attention today.

We are turning the clock back to the Vaux sports day with eight Sunderland Echo archive photos from the event in 1983 and 1987.

Look at the competitors as they get stuck in to the games in June 1987.

Four years earlier, more than 2,000 Vaux employees and their families converged on the Vaux sports field at Glenesk Road in Sunderland for the annual sports day.

They were joined by the Sunderland Echo photographer who captured some great images. Question is, were you pictured?

Take a look and then get in touch with your memories of a great day for all the family.
