1. All smiles and rightly so!
These pupils at St Anne's School in Pennywell had every reason to smile as they won the Sunderland Health Authority School Dental Competition drama section.
More than 30 children aged around eight took part in the drama where they dressed up as teeth, toothbrushes, toothpaste and dentists. Were you one of them? If so, email email@example.com and tell us more.
2. Fun on the river
Durham Regatta has been a part of the North East calendar for at least 185 years. Here's a scene from the 1985 event. But which traditional events are your favourites from Wearside and County Durham? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Hard at work
A new £1million production line started at Grundfos Manufacturing in Sunderland and here are some of the workers on it.
One of Europe's most advanced pump producers, Grundfos had only been open for five years in Sunderland when this photograph was taken, but it was already making its mark even back then when it was chosen to be the sole manufacturing centre.
4. A bustling scene
Sunderland's Market Square looks like a hive of activity in this 34-year-old scene.
