South Tyneside is set to follow tradition this weekend for the annual Mayor's Sunday Parade.
The Borough's new Mayor, Councillor Norman Dick, will be joined by his Mayoress, Jean Williamson, as well as civic dignitaries and uniformed organisations for the colourful Mayor's Sunday procession and service, taking place this Sunday, 16 June.
Mayor's Sunday marks the start of Councillor Dick's role as the first citizen of the Borough and will involve groups such as Westoe Brass Band and Durham Light Infantry.
The procession will march from South Shields Town Hall at 12noon to St Hilda's Church in the Market Place for a service at 12:30pm, conducted by The Venerable Archdeacon Robert Cooper.
The Mayor said: "It is a great honour to take part in this event which is steeped in tradition. It gives the Mayoress and I a chance to reflect on what we would like to achieve during our year in office.
"This special occasion also gives local people an opportunity to come together to celebrate the many wonderful things about living in South Tyneside."
There will be some road closures in place along the march route.
