All this and more makes up this week’s selection of photographs from 1984.
Charlie was the star at the St Anthony’s fete, Duncan passed on tips to young swimmers at the Sunderland Poly pool and Wearside scouts had great fun on a sports day.
Take a look at our photos for much more on all of this.
1. Duncan made a splash at this Sunderland Poly event
Olympic swimmer Duncan Goodhew was a big hit when he came to Sunderland Polytechnic pool to pass on some of his tips in 1984. He is pictured with youngsters who were all part of the Learn To Swim programme at the time.
The class was for children aged from six to 17. Were you a part of it? Email [email protected] and tell us more.
2. Little Bo Peep and all her friends
Little Bo Peep and lots of other characters are featured in this scene from Pennywell Nursery in 1984. They all look so impressive in their costumes but can anyone tell us who they are?

3. Dancers galore at Washington event
Tremendous fan was had by all at the Youth Expo 84 event in Washington. In fact, it was so good that more than 1,000 people came along.
It was held at Oxclose School and hundreds of teenagers took part in competitions, dance contests and a fashion show before rounding the day off with a barbecue.
The event was the first of its type in Washington for three years.
4. On their marks
They're off in the under-13s sack race at the Sunderland Scouts sports day in 1984. Youngsters from 25 Cub packs, 13 Scouts packs and four Venture packs all took part in the event which was held at the Silksworth Outdoor Recreation Centre.
