Zetland FM Local News - 2nd February 2017
A round up of Local News in Redcar and Cleveland for Thursday 2nd February 2017.
A fundraising page has been set up after animal shelter Maxi’s Mates was broken into at the weekend.
The kennels were broken into overnight on Saturday.
The intruders smashed a glass pane in a door near where the dogs are kept.
While it’s not known if anything was stolen but the noise may have caused some distress to the animals.
Now Jordan Coates has set up a JustGiving page to help pay for damages as well as raise money for the shelter’s upkeep.
So far people have donated over £700 to the cause.
Redcar and Cleveland Council are asking residents to give their views on the new proposed library service.
The proposals include cutting the mobile library service - but while 13 libraries across the area will be kept open, the council want to change opening hours.
They also want to relocate two libraries, modernise some with self-service machines and encourage volunteers to help out.
The changes are in a bid to help the council find 25.6 million pounds worth of cuts by 2020. 400 thousand pounds of this is proposed to come from Library and Customer Engagement Services.
Now the council are asking residents to have their say by attending consultation sessions.
The next session is today at Brotton Library between 2 and 4.
Other sessions will take place over the next two weeks at Redcar, Marske and Saltburn.
Teesside Hospice is holding a charity dog-walking event in Redcar next week.
The charity event takes place on a 4 mile route on Foxrush Farm on Sunday the 12th of February at half past ten.

And anyone who books a place in advance will get a doggy goody bag donated by Wags and Whiskers Pet Boutique and Café.
Booking forms can be found in Wags and Whiskers and on the Teesside Hospice website and humans can enter free of charge.
