Do you have a story to tell or a memory to share?
Remembering the Past is collecting memories about every part of life in North Tyneside and its surrounding areas, as told by those who lived, worked and played there.
Here you'll find memories and experiences contributed entirely by people who were born and raised in the area, or who have moved here from other parts of the country. Their stories cover a timespan of over 100 years, with our earliest memory going back to 1906.
From birth to death, holidays, school, childhood and working life, health, entertainment, politics, festivals, transport, shopping and home. Whether your memories are from 6, 16, or 60 years ago you will help build a living community history, which other people will enjoy.
This is a living archive and it needs more stories – can you share one with us?
