Dog lovers are being invited to scatter the ashes of Scamp, the dog that was found buried alive in Kirkleatham Woods with a nail through his head.
Animal charity 'Save Our Stray' has made an agreement with the RSPCA to scatter his ashes on Marske beach.
He was found in the woods last October after walkers heard a whimpering noise.
Two men from Redcar were jailed for four months after admitting the cruelty.
Michael Heathcott pleaded guilty to hammering the nail into Scamp's head, while Richard Finch admitted assisting.
Anyone who wants to attend is asked to gather on the beach below the Stray cafe on 31st March at half past six in the evening.
A marking event is being held today in Guisborough to help residents keep their property out of the hands of criminals.
Residents can get a free etching to keep anything from bicycles to mobile phones safe, the etchings not only reunite owners with their property, but can also help to provide evidence to convict thieves.
The marking itself could be enough to deter a criminal simply because of their permanent appearance.
The event will be held at Lingdale Community Hall this afternoon between 2 and 4pm.
A Saltburn care home has signed up to try and break a world record.
Residents from Four Seasons Care Home are joining the ranks to take part in what's hoped to be the largest waltz in the world.
Age UK Teesside is hoping to break the record by dancing their way along Saltburn pier and promenade in two month's time.
The record is currently held by Bosnia who managed to get one thousand five hundred and ten couples waltzing in 2007.
The event has been organised to celebrate 'loving later life' and raise awareness of the loneliness faced by elderly people.
But organisers have assured us that the event is for people of all ages and dancing abilities.
