It’s a school affair in this week’s Throwback Thursday series, with Thurleston High and St Pancras Primary among the line-up.
March 1983 is the focus of this week’s Throwback Thursday, which today kicks off with pictures from Thurleston High School making the most of their “civvies day”.
British former athlete and strongman Geoff Capes paid the Northgate Sports Centre a visit, leading classes and practical sessions and teaching children the correct techniques for throwing a shot put.
A number of activities for the Easter period were also on offer.
Following on from the release of War the month before, U2 took to the stage at the Gaumont. The album contained hits including ‘Sunday Bloody Sunday’ and ‘New Year’s Day’ and became their first UK number one album.
