Racing back to '83 for memories of this Pennywell event
On your marks with your memories of this Sunderland event which takes us back to 1983.
They held a week of fun events in Pennywell 36 years ago this month and that included races for children.
Not only that, it also included a chance to get creative and make scary monsters.
Pictured is Community Services Police Officer Jill Gibson-Stephenson. She was there to start a race as part of the superstars competition held at the Pennywell Community Centre.
Running wasn’t the only attraction during Pennywell Community Week. Another event was the monster-making session and the aim was to build a creature from anything that could be found lying around.
To give them a helping hand, Pennywell children were aided by members of the Society of Victorian Time Travellers.
A third event was a treasure hunt which involved children from the Pennywell Community Association Nursery School. They were sponsored to do it and they raised an impressive £75 for Pennywell CA Luncheon Club.
The Pennywell Community Week attracted dozens of youngsters. Were you one of them and which event did you enjoy the most?
