Just wondering if anyone could tell me if the still do the parade with floats which used to end in Bents Park with loads of stalls. If so, when is it on?

I never realised South Shields got so wet.

How long do the floods last.

How do people get around do the buses have floats too ?

I can remember marching in that parade years ago with a girl guide band!

I remember we had to line up in the side streets around the town hall before we started marching......

at the end in Bents Park there was piles of horse poo everywhere, and in July it doesn't smell too good!

aaaahhhhhhh......memories.......
