Zetland FM Local News - 26th January 2017
A round up of Local News in Redcar and Cleveland for Thursday 26th January 2017.
Redcar and Cleveland residents are invited to a ceremony this Friday to commemorate National Holocaust Memorial Day.
The ceremony will include civic officials, members of the public and children remembering the atrocities of World War 2.
The Mayor, Councillor Barry Hunt and Redcar MP Anna Turley are also attending along with representatives from the British Legion.
A plaque will be unveiled next to a memorial tree and children from Coatham School will be planting bulbs.
The ceremony will take place this Friday at half eleven in the Garden of Remembrance on Coatham Road.
The former Co-Op in Normanby is being turned into a Family Shopper store.
Work has started to transform the space but it isn't known when the shop will open yet.
The Co-Operative closed after 90 years in January last year and the store space has remained empty ever since.
But now the empty unit has been taken up and is being converted into a Family Shopper store.
The company behind the takeover has applied to Redcar and Cleveland Council for a licence in order to sell alcohol.
The council are asking anyone who wants to make representation on the licence to give written notice to the licencing team by next Thursday.
Saltburn Pier is once again open to the public after being damaged by the recent tidal surge.
Repairs were carried out earlier this week to some minor damage.
Some planks had lifted, a kick rail was broken off and the gate frames needed to be reattached.
Although the damage was major, it posed a risk to members of the public - particularly children and pet dogs.
The tidal surge also caused flooding in Redcar and Saltburn almost two weeks ago.
Clean ups of the areas were carried out to clear the seafronts of debris caused by the high tides.
