A local MP has raised the issue of business rates and child social care in our area with the Chancellor of the Exchequer.

In line with their Manifesto pledge, the Government aims for all local authorities to retain 75 per cent of their business rates from the 2020-21 financial year, granting Councils the levers and incentives they need to grow their local economies.

But with a greater proportion of Council revenue coming from business rates, East Cleveland MP Simon Clarke is concerned that Councils such as Redcar & Cleveland will be hit hardest.

 

Cleveland Police’s Crime Prevention Team are launching their annual ‘Shut It, Lock It’ burglary campaign this Tuesday which will be running until 30th June.

The campaign is to offer people crime prevention advice to prevent them from becoming a victim of burglary. 

To tie in with the campaign, the Crime Prevention Team are inviting members of the public to attend two pop-up shops where the team will be there to discuss burglaries and to answer any crime prevention questions you may have.

Pop-up shop one will be held on Tuesday 1st May from 10am-12pm at Middlesbrough Bus Station

Pop-up shop two will be held on Friday 18th May from 10am-12pm at Asda in Skelton

 

The East Cleveland Klondike Grand Prix cycle race returns tomorrow and spectators are being advised to get there early for the best view.

The action packed cycling spectacular features some of the country’s best riders competing for glory on the gruelling 90 mile route.

Beginning and ending in Guisborough’s historic Westgate, the race takes in various East Cleveland towns and villages including Loftus, Skelton, Brotton and Lingdale.

Last year’s inaugural winner, Chris Lathem, is confirmed to defend his title.

The race, part of British Cycling’s Spring Cup, starts at 12 noon on Guisborough’s Westgate, but before that there is the youth race where the cycling stars of tomorrow will be honing their skills.
