Police are appealing for information following burglaries in Eston and Normanby.
In the early hours of Saturday morning entry was gained to a house on Southgate in Eston.
Two males were disturbed and made off, but they did get away with several items. It is believed that they removed the keys from the inside of the front door and gained entry.
In a separate incident at the end of last week another break-in occurred at Crathorne Park in Normanby.
Intruders entered through an insecure door and stole valuble items from the property of an elderly resident.
Police are warning the public to be aware of these types of breaks and to take necessary precautions.
Anyone with any information on the above please contact Southbank Police Station on 101 or Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111.
A local sports club is celebrating after being awarded funding for a new sports pavilion.
Carlin How Working Men’s Bowls Club is among 148 local sports projects to secure a share of £9million of National Lottery funding from Sport England’s Inspired Facilities fund.
Since 2011, the fund has been helping breathe new life into tired community sports facilities and converting existing buildings into venues suitable for grassroots sport.
The club will receive almost £68,000 of the funding to build a new pavilion replacing the old one.
Records of sport being played at the current site date back to the early 1900s, however late last year the club was put at risk of closure due to health and safety concerns with its pavilion. Through this funding the club will have the resources to build a brand new pavilion which will secure the long term future of bowling at the club.
The new facility will be open for use by the local community and will also double up as a changing facility for football during the winter months.
Redcar neighbourhood police officers have donated eight bicycles to a project which works with people with learning difficulties in Redcar.
Route 1 Coffee House on Queen Street provides support to the local community, in addition to its coffee shop, by providing a customer bike stop and maintenance service above the cafe. The bikes were handed over to the project by PCSO Hannah Lamb and PC Nick Lynch on Monday.
The project works with adults who have learning difficulties and helps them to fix, maintain or ‘do up’ bikes with the intention to sell them on which allows the money earned to be put back into the enterprise to fund day trips.
