We’re getting nostalgic about old-fashioned games this week.

We are hopping and skipping back to 2004 when children went along to the Oz Centre in Osborne Road in Hartlepool.

Marbles provided a great form of entertainment for this keen player.

They got a chance to try out traditional pastimes which included skipping, board games, and marbles.

Do you remember this or, indeed, any of the other old-fashioned games you enjoyed in years gone by. Which was your favourite?

And can you recognise any of the children who are pictured learning about a bygone era?

Who are the three children trying out skipping or the young boy playing marbles?
